Probate and Trust Administration by Wayne Gardner in Scottsdale, Mesa, Gilbert and Chandler, Arizona
Probate is the legal process that assures the property of a deceased person is given to those designated by the deceased. The probate proceeding collects and preserves all of the property and assets, and distributes them as set out in the last will and testament of the deceased. If there is no will or trust, the assets will be distributed to creditors and others according to the law — regardless of what the deceased wanted.
If you have lost a loved one, we recommend that you consult and work with an experienced probate attorney, such as Wayne Gardner.

The Probate Process in Arizona
The probate process usually begins with the preparation of a last will and testament document that is used to open probate. A probate attorney typically handles this step. The court will then appoint a representative to administer the estate. If a will is provided to the court, the court will determine if it’s valid. If the court finds that the will is valid, it will authorize the person designated in the will to distribute the assets as instructed in the will. Once this is accomplished, the probate proceedings are closed.
