Arizona Small Estate Affidavit | Affidavit of Heirship
Use the downloadable small estate affidavit and the affidavit of heirship to prevent a deceased loved one’s estate from going to probate court, and ensure there are no legal battles for ownership of finances or property after they have passed. If a loved one in Arizona did not create a will before they died, use these forms to help make the family’s transition smoother.
Affidavit of Heirship: Arizona does not force family or other inheritors to initiate the heirship process immediately after death, but allows grieving families to wait up to 2 years before completing and filing the affidavit of heirship.
Small Estate Laws: In Arizona, successors may avoid probate court by filing a small estate affidavit if the estate values less than $75,000 for tangible personal property; $100,000 for real property.
