Step 4 - Submit Information: Legal Notice For Probate Of Estates And What To Do After You Have Notified All Interested Persons (Yuma) to the relevant office

This is most often the local probate court where the decedent (person who passed away) is domiciled (permanently resides) or the institution involved with this particular form (e.g. a bank). Some offices allow you to submit forms online, other’s don’t, and we while we generally recommend going in-person to expedite the process, sometimes that simply isn’t an option.

It’s also a generally good idea to establish a positive working relationship with any probate clerk (unfortunately there’s enough people & process out there making things more difficult and unnecessarily confusing for them), so a best practice is to simply ask the probate clerk proactively exactly how and where they’d prefer you to submit all forms.

When Information: Legal Notice For Probate Of Estates And What To Do After You Have Notified All Interested Persons (Yuma) is due

Different probate forms or processes can require different deadlines or response times for completing the appropriate form.

While some steps in the process are bound to specific deadlines (like petitioning for probate, having to submit an inventory of assets, or filing applicable notices to creditors and beneficiaries), many probate forms or processes are not tied to a specific deadline since the scope of work can vary based on situational factors or requirements involved.

Either way, there are a bunch of practical reasons why personal representatives should work to complete each step as thoroughly and quickly as possible when completing probate in Arizona.

5 reasons you should submit this form as quickly as possible:

  1. The sooner you begin, the faster Arizona can allow heirs and beneficiaries to get their share of assets subject to probate. Acting promptly can also decrease the costs & overall mental fatigue through an otherwise burdensome process.

    Helpful Context: What’s the Difference Between Probate and Non-Probate Assets?

  2. In general, creditors of an estate usually have around 3-6 months from the time you file notice to creditors to file any claims for debt against the deceased’s assets. If they don’t, then that debt is forfeited (and more importantly, the executor won’t be held personally responsible). So doing this sooner means you have a better idea of who is owed what and ensures you won’t get a surprise collector months later.

  3. Not filing a will within 30 days (on average) could mean that the probate process proceeds according to intestate laws (laws that govern what happens to someone's stuff without a will) or is subject to unnecessary supervision by the probate court. And if you aren't directly related to the deceased (a.k.a. next of kin), this could also mean you lose your inheritance.

  4. It’s important to file any necessary state tax returns on behalf of the deceased or estate by the following tax season in Arizona. If you don’t, you could owe penalties and interest. This also includes any necessary federal tax returns such as Forms 1040, 1041, or even a Form 706 estate tax return.

  5. If a house in the State of Arizona is left empty (or abandoned) for a while, insurance can get dicey. For example, if the house burns down and no one has been there for a year, an insurance company may get out of paying your claim.

If you’re not using Atticus to get specific forms, deadlines, and timelines for Arizona probate, then try and stay as organized as possible, pay close attention to the dates mentioned in any correspondence you have with the State’s government officials, call the local Arizona probate clerk or court for exact answers regarding Form Information: Legal Notice For Probate Of Estates And What To Do After You Have Notified All Interested Persons (Yuma), and when in doubt— consult a qualified trust & estates lawyer for that area.

  • Paying off all estate debts and taxes

Here’s the text, verbatim, that is found on Arizona Form Information: Legal Notice For Probate Of Estates And What To Do After You Have Notified All Interested Persons (Yuma). You can use this to get an idea of the context of the form and what type of information is needed.

Law Library Resource Center INFORMATION ON LEGAL NOTICE FOR PROBATE OF ESTATES AND WHAT TO DO AFTER YOU HAVE NOTIFIED ALL INTERESTED PERSONS 1.WHAT IS LEGAL NOTICE: After you have completed AND filed the probate papers with the Court, you must tell all “interested persons” about the papers. See #3 below for definition of “interested persons”. A.WHAT COURT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED TO GIVE NOTICE ABOUT IMMEDIATELY AFTER I HAVE FILED THE APPLICATION? To give Notice, you have to give copies of Court documents to those entitled to notice. The documents you need to give those entitled to notice at this time are: •APPLICATION FOR INFORMAL APPOINTMENT OF PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE (when a person died with a Will or without a Will). •NOTICE OF APPLICATION (in Informal Proceeding). It is recommended that you give people entitled to notice copies of all documents you filed with the court so that you know you gave people copies of the correct documents. You then must list in the PROOF OF NOTICE (see section C, below) the people you gave the documents to, their address and the date the documents were mailed or delivered. B.WHAT ARE THE WAYS TO GIVE LEGAL NOTICE? •“Personal Service” means giving formal notice that is required in some cases for some persons. It requires that a registered process server or the sheriff serve the documents on interested persons or that a person accept service of the papers. When personal service is required, it means the law is written to make sure that a person who needs notice of a case gets the notice. •Mail or hand delivery is a less formal but important way of giving notice to other persons in some cases. When you are required to give notice by mail, 1st class postage-prepaid mail is usually acceptable. Certified mail with return receipt is an extra step you can take to prove that the person you want to have notice received the notice. Note: Service by mail or hand-delivery is only allowed in SOME cases, so make sure you read the instructions to see if you can use this method of service. •Publication of Notice is used when you do not know the address of the person to whom you need to give notice. For publication, you need to try to find the person who is supposed to get notice, and prove to the Court you did everything you could to try to find the person or the person’s address. Then, you must publish the Notice at least 3 times in a newspaper in the county where the case was filed. Note: Remember that Notice to Creditors (if applicable) must be published 3 consecutive weeks. (A.R.S. § 14-3801) C.HOW DO I SHOW THAT I GAVE LEGAL NOTICE? •PR OOF OF NOTICE is the document you sign and file with the Court to prove you gave notice to all interested persons, and how you did it. You must fill out this form after you have served the documents on all interested persons (See Step 3).There are other documents that go with the PROOF OF NOTICE to show that service was made. These documents may include the following: Page 1 of 2 1)AFFIDAVIT OF PUBLICATION, 2)AFFIDAVIT OF SERVICE signed by the process server or sheriff, OR 3)ACCEPTANCE OF SERVICE. 2.TIME FRAMES TO GIVE LEGAL NOTICE: Generally, you must give all interested persons notice of the court papers immediately after you file the documents with the court. If you do not know where the person lives and have tried to find them, you can give Notice by Publication. Note: The newspaper will provide the AFFIDAVIT OF PUBLICATION to you after all 3 notices to interested persons and/or to creditors have been published. 3.WHO IS ENTITLED TO LEGAL NOTICE: You must give notice to all “interested persons”. This includes, but is not limited to: •Any person that has filed a Demand for Notice with the court, •Any Personal Representative of the decedent whose appointment has not ended, •Any spouse, •Any adult child(ren), •Any parents, brothers and/or sisters of the decedent, AND •Any person named as an heir in the Will of the decedent. 4. COMPLETE THE PROOF OF NOTICE: After Notice is done, you must complete the PROOF OF NOTICE form. Be sure to list the names of the persons to whom you gave the copies, address, and the date you mailed or delivered the documents. If the person has an attorney, make sure you mail copies to the attorney, too. Then, make 3 copies of the PROOF OF NOTICE. 5. FILE THE PROOF OF NOTICE AND OTHER COURT PAPERS: File the PROOF OF NOTICE and other court papers with the Clerk of the Court, Probate Registrar. These documents should be filed with the court immediately after you have notified all interested persons. See Procedures: How to Apply to be Personal Representative to find out what documents you should complete and file with the Probate Registrar. After you file the PROOF OF NOTICE and other court papers, mail or deliver a copy to all interested persons immediately. •Take the original and 2 copies of the PROOF OF NOTICE and other court papers to the Probate Registrar who will file the original and stamp copy on each of the 2 copies and return them to you. •Keep a copy of each document for your records. 6.NEXT STEPS: See Packet number 2 concerning “The Appointment, Notice of Appointment, Inventory and Appraisement.” 7.OTHER HELP: If you still have questions about this procedure, you can ask a lawyer for legal advice.
