Free Printable Arizona Last Will and Testament Forms

The Arizona last will and testament is an official document that expresses the last wishes of the testator (person executing the will) for the disposition of their belongings in the event of their death. A testator can leave cash on hand, life insurance policies, real and personal property, fiduciary assets, and any other element of their estate to selected beneficiaries by creating a will. The will can include specific instructions for the care of children and/or pets.

A vital stage in the estate planning process is writing a will. A last will and testament, also referred to as just a will, is a legal document that outlines your desires for the disposition of your possessions after your death and appoints a guardian for any minor children. Anyone who is at least eighteen years old is eligible to make a will.
