Understanding the Probate Process

Probate is a legal process where the courts determine how to divide the assets to the family members and beneficiaries of a loved one who has passed. If there is a will, the person designated as the executor will see that all of the assets are properly distributed.

Nevada’s law regulates distribution by how much the estate is worth and its size. It may not be necessary to settle smaller estates through probate, as an example. If you need assistance familiarizing yourself with all of the details, do not hesitate to ask our Las Vegas probate attorneys for assistance.

Here is an outline of how probate works for the varying estate sizes:

  • Estates under $20, 000: file an Affidavit of Entitlement
  • Estates under $100, 000: use the “set aside without administration” procedure
  • Estates worth more than $100, 000 but under $200, 000: summary administration procedure
  • Estates above $200, 000: full administration

As you can see, the larger the estate, the more it would is required from you. We would be more than happy to discuss with you the requirements for your individual probate matter. We can guide you through every step of the process, from gathering any necessary documentation, such as your loved one’s will, to the appointment of an executor.
