Las Vegas Probate Attorney

Estate Settlement and Administration Assistance in Nevada

Probate is the court supervised administration of a decedent’s estate to closing. There are multiple required petitions that must be submitted to the court each with their own hearing. 

There are three “levels” of probate depending on the value or size of the estate: 

  • Set Aside = estate value less than $100,000
  • Summary Administration = estate value $100,000 up to $299,999
  • General Administration = estate value greater than $300,000
He is committed to doing what is right, and that is exactly what you get.
Happy Client

There is also a fourth type of proceeding called Special Administration which is an emergency type proceeding used when estate assets are at risk, unknown, or unreachable by the heirs. 

Notice of each petition and the associated hearing must be mailed to each interested party. Every petition is different and each carry their own requirements. Notice to any potential creditors must be published in the newspaper or mailed directly to known creditors. An administrator or personal representative will be appointed by the court who must inventory the estate’s assets and an account for all expenditures. A blocked estate account is most always required and an IRS EIN number must be obtained. Court permission is always required before distribution of the assets to the heirs. 

We can help you get through this difficult process and we are committed to staying in close contact with our clients. Many times, it is appropriate to call the attorney on his personal cell phone and that is not a problem at all. 

Probate is notoriously expensive, time-consuming, and rife with conflict. It can often represent a burden to grieving families and delay planned inheritances. It is nearly always advisable to take proactive steps to avoid probate as much as possible. 

Probate avoidance can be accomplished through the implementation of a well-designed estate planWhile your last will and testament is an important document that will guide the probate process, it should ideally only serve as a formality and be supplemented by other estate planning instruments. 

Trusts can be used to distribute assets to beneficiaries, and assets placed in trusts are not generally subject to probate. “Pour-over” wills can be used to “catch” assets not placed in trusts. By relying primarily on trusts, you can more adequately protect your assets and loved ones. We can help identify and incorporate probate avoidance strategies.
