Probate and Transfer of Motor Vehicle Title

Arizona law now has a provision for people to transfer motor vehicle title upon death without having to go through the probate process.  A column published in the Arizona Republic brought attention to the recent addition of the “Beneficiary Designation” form that may now be found on the Department of Motor Vehicle’s website.

You can access the column here and find the form on the MVD website by clicking here.

If you are considering your estate planning options, you may also wish to look at some resources available at the Law Library including Nolo Press’s 8 Steps to Avoid Probate as well as Estate Planning Basics. Sample library catalog search for “Estate Planning“.
