Two weeks ago my Aunt passed away unexpectedly after a surgery. We live in Arizona and located a beneficiary deed. The deed stated that she wanted her estate to be left to My brother, sister, and I. The deed was signed as well as notarized, but not recorded. We have not located a will and since her death was unexpected, we don’t think there is one. My grandfather (my aunt’s father) is still alive. He has been estranged from the family since 1996 and has Alzheimer’s. I was reading that he would be the next of kin. We want to fight for my aunts estate because she would be very upset if her father received any of it, because he had walked out on the family. The estate is valued around 500k. We reached out to a probate lawyer who instructed us to reach out to our grandfather . My grandfather is contacting a lawyer, as are we. Will the beneficiary deed that was notarized work? Do we have a chance at fighting this in court? Any input would be much appreciated! Thank you!
