Ancillary Probate Administration and Proof of Authority in Arizona

Ancillary administration is necessary when there is a death of an individual in one state, and the decendent is in another.

Often an individual owns property in Arizona while maintaining a formal residence elsewhere. At the time of death, this may require ancillary administration and probate for an out-of-state decedent. Ancillary administration is necessary because real estate must be probated in the state which it exists. Ancillary administration applies regardless of the value of the home and even where there is a probate proceeding that is administered in the home state of the person who has died.

To take control over Arizona assets while a probate proceeding is underway in another state, Kierman Law can assist you with filing a Proof of Authority and Deed of Distribution. We have extensive experience with ancillary probate administration and can act on behalf of the out-of-state family. We can also handle the non-domiciliary administration in Arizona with the trust administration attorney who is dealing with the domiciliary probate in the decedent’s home state.
