Las Vegas Wills Attorney

Diligent Assistance Throughout the State of Nevada

Wills must be validated to be enforceable. Simply dictating or writing down your final intentions on a piece of paper will typically not constitute an enforceable will. We can help ensure all legally necessary steps are followed when finalizing and your estate planning documents.

Holographic wills, which are handwritten, will be accepted in Nevada if the entirety of the document is printed in the testator’s handwriting. All material provisions must be included, and the document must be dated and signed. No witnesses are necessary.

For typewritten wills, you will need at least two witnesses. Ideally, these witnesses should not be beneficiaries. You will need to sign and date the document in the presence of your witnesses. Your witnesses must also sign and date the document, and they must be prepared to verify their signatures when the will is entered into probate. 

Note that you must be of “sound mind” when you finalize your will. In other words, you must be mentally competent and understand what you are doing in signing the document. 

While using a notary is not required to finalize a will in the state of Nevada, involving one can be useful. You can make a will “self-proving” if you have the document notarized in the presence of your two witnesses. This can expedite the probate process, as the court will not need to contact the will’s witnesses.

Will Litigation Support

Interested parties – including relatives of the testator – have the right to “contest” a will on certain grounds. Grounds recognized by the state of Nevada include improper execution of the will, lack of mental capacity, and undue influence. Even spurious will contests can substantially delay probate proceedings, and no assets can be distributed until the matter is resolved.
