Arizona law allows heirs to collect the assets of a deceased using a small estate affidavit or small estate transfer form as proscribed in the statutes. Use of these types of affidavits is allowed only on estates that are under the small estate limits (currently $100,000 for real estate and $50,000 for personal property).
Knight Law has successfully assisted many clients through the years with avoiding the expense of a full probate case by using small estate affidavits.
