Estate administration is often a slow process that involves looking at a decedent's assets and dividing them according to law and his or her wishes. General administration involves categorizing assets not listed in a trust and then handing them down according to the decedent's will (or intestate statutes if there is no will). Normally, a close family member is appointed to handle probate unless the decedent has appointed a specific person as executor in his or her will.
When arranging an estate for probate, parties need to choose whether they are going to opt for supervised or unsupervised administration. Supervised administration will involve the court and will make having a Las Vegas probate lawyer on your side even more crucial.
We suggest that you get the court involved if:
Unsupervised administration is permissible if the estate is solvent, which means that it has more assets than debts and if the will authorizes it. Also, all heirs to the will must agree for unsupervised administration. A court-appointed executor will be required to handle the administration and sale of all assets and will not be required to request court approval for decisions.
