What to Do When a Loved One Dies in Arizona

When a loved one passes away, the surviving friends and family members often have questions regarding what steps to take legally.

The first thing you should do is to make funeral arrangements. Some people leave instructions upon their death as far as whether they wish to be buried or cremated, and how they want their funeral to be handled. You may wish to look through your loved one’s papers to see if any such instructions exist. If not, take some time to speak with other friends and family members and consider what the decedent would have wanted. You may wish to contact a funeral director for guidance.

We encourage our clients to first tend to their emotional needs, and then, when ready, start to put the decedent’s affairs in order.
