Tempe, AZ asked in Estate Planning and Family Law for Arizona

Q: How do I find out if my dad had a will? His girlfriend was his POA when he was alive and she doesn't communicate.

I believe he created a trust for my sister and I but we don't know anything about it. Is there a way to look up that info?

A: One thing you can do is look up the home address at the Maricopa County Assessor's Office. It will tell you if the home is in the potential Trust. Here's a link: https://www.mcassessor.maricopa.gov/
