What Is The Process Of Creating A Will In Arizona?

Creating a will in Arizona involves several crucial steps to ensure your wishes are legally documented. First, consult with a Phoenix wills attorney from Yen Pilch Robaina & Kresin to better understand your options and the legal requirements. Our attorney will help you list your assets and determine how you want them distributed. You will also need to name an executor, the person responsible for carrying out your will's instructions.

Your attorney will draft the will, ensuring it complies with Arizona laws, including requirements for signing and witnessing. In Arizona, your will must be signed in the presence of two witnesses who are not beneficiaries. Your lawyer will guide you through this process, making sure all legal formalities are met.

After your will is created and signed, store it in a safe place and inform your executor of its location. It's also important to review and update your will periodically, especially after major life events. Working with a qualified Phoenix wills attorney from ensures that your will is valid and reflects your current wishes.

What Is the Purpose of a Will?

A last will and testament in Arizona is an important legal document for various reasons, including:

  • A last will and testament can designate an alternate guardian for minor children.
  • A last will and testament can provide instructions for distributing personal effects, such as artwork, electronics, furniture, jewelry, and more.
  • A last will and testament can designate an executor to pay final expenses, distribute assets, file tax returns, etc.

A last will and testament will only control estate property of which the person who has passed had exclusive ownership. In other words, the co-owner of any property or a named beneficiary on the property will have superior rights to the assets versus a person named in the will. A last will and testament will also not help a person avoid the probate court process.
