Arizona’s gun trust laws present a variety of challenges that cause practices of family law, criminal defense and estate planning to overlap.
First of all, you want to know that your firearms are in good hands after your passing. A gun trust written into your estate can ensure that.
From a criminal law standpoint, you want to make sure that all weapons you own are owned in accordance with the law — and we don’t mean just the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. You should be sure that you have free and clear ownership, and that your permits are in good standing.
Are ownership of your guns in play during property division discussions for your divorce? There is a way to divide them but trade-offs can also be made in return for stewardship of other property — real estate, a motor vehicle, deferred income, valuation of a business or a valuable stock or bond.
Arizona’s gun trusts are “on the books” for a reason: to assure that firearms that are dear to you should land in the possession of your nearest and dearest … people you trust with them. And one person, one legal professional, can give you the peace of your mind that your wishes will be followed: a skilled lawyer who is versatile enough to get results in the family law, estate planning and criminal law fields.
