Fiduciary Licensing Program

The Fiduciary Licensing Program is designed to help ensure Arizona's elderly, mentally incapacitated and other vulnerable citizens have licensed individuals or businesses managing their financial affairs, medical decisions and other vital matters.


The Committee on Improving Judicial Oversight and Processing of Probate Court Matters (“Probate Court Committee”) issued a Final Report to the Supreme Court in June 2011.

The Report of the Probate Court Committee can be found here.

In December 2011, the Supreme Court acted upon the recommendations of the Probate Court Committee by adopting changes to the Probate Rules.   Some of the adopted rules took effect February 1, 2012; the remaining changes are effective September 1, 2012.

On June 18, 2012, the Arizona Judicial Council will consider proposed administrative rules and training curriculum necessary to implement the Probate Rules effective September 1, 2012.  The Probate Rules with the September 1st effective date fall into 4 main areas:

1.      Training for attorneys serving as appointed counsel or guardians ad litem; for court investigators and for non licensed fiduciaries.

2.      Changes to Arizona Code of Judicial Administration (“ACJA”) § 7-202: Fiduciaries to implement statutory changes resulting from Senate Bill 1499 and other amendments necessary to implement the new Probate Rules. 

3.      Probate Forms.   A new ACJA Section § 3-302 adopts statewide Probate Forms.

4.      Statewide Fee Guidelines and Competitive Bids.  A new ACJA Section § 3-303 adopts the recommendation of the Probate Court Committee for statewide Fee Guidelines and Competitive Bids.
