My husband and I have been interviewing attorneys to update our documents to ensure we are compliant with the law.
We had 2 attorneys tell us that in AZ your estate will go through probate, regardless of how it is structured.
I stated this in an answer.
I have since found out that they were both wrong.
Please, everyone, learn from our experience and interview multiple attorneys until you find one that meets all your needs and knows their business. I am flabbergasted that they would not know that a trust doesn't go through probate. The 1st guy I thought, yea, whatever but when the very next appointment a different attorney said the same and when questioned, reiterated that I understood and every estate goes through probate, I assumed ( yea, I know) the law had changed and this was actually good information.
So, I have to apologize to you all for that incorrect information.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and a holiday season that meets your wishes and desires.
