questions & answers

Question: My mom and dad were seperated for many years but still married. She passed away. Her will was changed not long before she died making the man she lives with the beneficiary. Isn't my dad still entitled to her estate, or a percentage of it if still legally married

Answer: You may need to consult an attorney regarding changes in your mother's will. Arizona is a community property state so it's best to contact an attorney to see what his rights may be.
