In Arizona, the probate process begins when the person who wants to be appointed as personal representative files an application with the probate court. Informal probate allows for the appointment of the person named as personal representative in the will and distribution of assets with minimal court involvement. If there is no Will or the Will doesn’t name a Personal Representative, the court will appoint a person who has priority for appointment. For example, the surviving spouse is first in the order of priority. The application is filed with the probate registrar and a court hearing is not required. Informal probate is for uncontested matters and can only be used in certain cases.
