A: You don't have to sign anything until you have had the chance to review it with counsel. There are many fine probate lawyers in Arizona and the cost of a consultation will cost you very little and could save you thousands (or tens of thousands). Many of us will do virtual consultations after COVID. Get the document but don't sign it until it has been reviewed by counsel and you have received proper legal advice. No need to guess what it is.

A: Totally agree with the other attorneys. I would not be surprised if you are presented with the document and asked to sign it right then and there. Unless you are totally comfortable with what it say and what it means. Do not do that. Ask for time to think about it and then call an attorney.
