Probate is an area of law that is not often spoken about or are neglected by individuals due to facing the reality of death. In very general terms, probate is the legal process that happens after a person dies in order to pay lawful creditors and transfer assets to rightful beneficiaries.
This can include proving the validity of a will, identifying the deceased person's property and the value of that property, transferring that property, and paying debts.
Probate is a complicated process for anyone to try to handle without an attorney. This is because dealing with a probate court is not something that is common knowledge, and having to handle complicated legal matters while grieving the loss of a loved one is exceptionally agonizing.
The Clark County District Court (probate court) will oversee the distribution of the assets in the estate either according to the terms of a valid will or under Nevada law if there is no will.
It is important to know that Nevada courts only have jurisdiction over real property in Nevada. This means that if the decedent lived or died in Nevada, Nevada courts only have jurisdiction over the property or estate located in Nevada.
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.
