Arizona-Probate

Probate is a legal document. Receipt of probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a will. A probate court (surrogate court) decides the legal validity of a testator’s will and grants its approval by granting probate to the executor. The probated will becomes a legal instrument that may be enforced by the executor in the law-courts if necessary. A probate also officially appoints the executor (or personal representative),
