Protecting Your Legacy And Wishes During Estate Planning And Probate
Individuals, couples and families in Arizona – young and old, employers and employees, divorcees, students and retirees – can benefit from the formulation of solid estate planning.
Survivors of loved ones can also benefit from the smooth administration of an estate plan constructed to help avoid the expense, stress and inconvenience of probate proceedings.
Helping You Create And Administer A Sound Estate Plan
At the Law Office of Frank L. Ross, in Avondale, Arizona, attorney Frank L. Ross listens closely to your goals for the distribution of assets and property to beneficiaries. He explicitly refers to those wishes when drafting estate documentation – typically the combination of a will, power of attorney, trust and advance health care directive that are relevant to your unique situation.
When the time comes to administer the estate, attorney Ross will work closely with trustees, executors and beneficiaries to get things right the first time. He takes the time to fully answer your questions and furnish you with facts that can translate to sound decisions about your family’s future.
Streamlining The Probate Process
In Arizona, not all estates need court supervision to settle an estate. For those that do, there are three different options: informal probate, formal probate and supervised probate. If you have been selected to serve as your loved one’s estate executor, attorney Ross is ready to educate you on your legal obligations and your choices. Drawing on decades of probate experience, he is able to identify strategies that may allow you to streamline the probate process, which can save you time and money. For example, if the estate meets the state’s requirements for a “small estate,” the estate may be settled through a simplified probate process or may not need to be probated at all.
It can be overwhelming to navigate Arizona’s legal system after your loved one has passed. The team at Law Office of Frank L. Ross is here to guide you through the process so that you can shift your focus from legal concerns to your personal matters.
