My questions involve estate proceedings in the state of: Arizona
The only sister of the deceased is applying to be a personal representative (PR), there are no other relatives to inherit the property before her, she has children and an aunt. My questions are:
If following the AZ intestate succession law, the only sister of the deceased is entitled to inherit, does she have to formally notify her children and the aunt of the deceased of her appointment as a PR? Would her children and aunt be considered heirs for the purposes of informal probate or she is the only heir at this time by sucession? Below is the definition:
Can a PR give a POA to others to perform certain actions required of a PR?
Will the PR need to obtain copies of the death certificate and the birth certificate of the deceased (as evidence of relation), or courts have a way to confirm death/relation on their own?
