If someone close to you has passed away, you may wonder where their assets go when they die.

The way the property of a deceased person will end up in the hands of the living will depend on the type of property the decedent owned.

Not all property passes through probate upon death. In fact, there are five (5) major types of property that an individual owns upon death (called "estate property"), and only one (1) of them (i.e., "solely-owned property" aka property owned in the deceased's name alone) actually passes through probate.

Due to the plethora of laws and individuals involved in a Nevada probate process, it it is best to hire an experienced attorney to assist with the court process. In most instances, attorneys fees are paid by the estate, meaning you will not have to spend your own money to handle a deceased individual's probate in Nevada.
