Answer: I am not sure whether you are asking if you have to start the probate process for your parents or for your brothers. Generally the executor of the estate, listed in the decedent’s will, must start the probate process. If there is no will, the property will go through intestate succession. In Arizona, the following website provides a full list of individuals who may fulfill the role of an executor if there is no will: http://www.azcourts.gov/probate Furthermore, the jurisdiction of the probate court depends on a number of circumstances. For example, the location of the property and what type of property is being transferred may have an effect on the power of the court. It may be in your best interest to contact an attorney for additional information regarding the probate process.
