NEW ARIZONA PROBATE RULES REQUIRE TRAINING FOR SELF REPRESENTED FIDUCIARIES
What in the world does that mean? If you want to represent yourself in your own Probate proceeding or Guardianship/Conservatorship proceeding for an adult or minor, Arizona now requires that any non-licensed person be required to go through some training to get you prepared for your duties as a Personal Representative in the case of a Probate. In the case of of a Guardianship or Conservator of a Minor or Adult, Arizona now requires some training before you are appointed the Guardian or Conservator.
FORMATS FOR REQUIRED TRAINING
In Pima County, you may complete this training by watching a 45 minute video or reading the information online in pdf format. For your convenience here are the links to that training.
Once you have completed the training there is a Certificate of Completion that you need to fill out and file with Superior Court as proof of completion before the court will appoint you as Personal Representative, Guardian or Conservator.
