Risk Assessment of Probate Matters in Arizona

Unknown-2Arizona has instituted a new system to monitor probate matters.  The state requires that probate cases be classified as minimum risk, moderate risk, or maximum risk.  Each file is to be evaluated and classified according to 39 indicators.  Some of those indicators include no family members, large estate, use of ATM's or gift cards, unauthorized gifts or loans, and health, business or personal problems of the fiduciary. Each category of risk requires court personnel to meet with the ward or beneficiaries--the only variance is how much contact is required.
