4 Questions Answered
- Q. Non Arizona resident parent has been moved here so we can provide in home care.
- A: This is a very good question as it involves "What is the resident state?" of your parent. Assuming that the intent is for him to reside here until he passes, he may be considered a resident of Arizona. Whe he passes we will recognize his valid Wyoming will and the will can be probated here in Arizona. I assume that the will is "up to date" and contains his wishes in terms of what his property is and who are his heirs and beneficiaries. If not, and he is of sound mind, the will should be updated ASAP. I have probated a number of out of state wills in Arizona without problems and, in our system, assuming everyone in the family is in agreement, this can be done without a huge expense and with no or minimal court hearings. I hope this information is helpful and invite you to contact me if you have further questions or concerns. I do recommend that you have the Wyoming will reviewed before his passing. Doug
- Q. My father passed away September 14. He owned property before he married his current wife. Rights of his children?
- A: The first thing to do is to see the original will. If the wife has it she will need to submit it to probate court and the Clerk will then have the original. You have a right to see it and to question it, especially under the circumstances. One question I have is the value of the house, in particular the equity value after subtracting any mortgages, as this may change the probate procedure. Of course you should be represented by the attorney of your choice in a matter such as this. Your lawyer should be different from the wife's lawyer to avoid any conflict of interest. Justia has a good listing of lawyers in Arizona. You should pick the person that you are comfortable with and that has experience in the areas of wills and probate.
- Q. my aunt set a trust up and named her husband the trustee. can we get money before he dies if it states not until he die
- A: Without seeing the trust, this is a difficult question to answer because there may be some provision for a distribution prior to the husband's death. If there is no such provision, then it is likely that the terms of the trust control, so that no distribution is possible prior to his death. Reading the trust could change the answer. I recommend that you pay a lawyer for an hour or two of time to read and review the trust so that you can get a proper answer to your question. If you can pdf the trust or fax it, this can be done without your coming into the office. We would also put our answer in writing for your review.
