Common Questions About Probate In Nevada
Probate is the process by which the title of assets is passed to beneficiaries after a loved one passes. It is something that our clients frequently ask us about, because there is so much misinformation out there about what it is exactly and if it is even necessary.
We here at Boyer Law Group wanted to take a few moments to address some of these common questions often asked of our attorney, so that you can get a better handle on what really happens during the probate process in Nevada.
How long does probate take?
Most people worry about the amount of time probate takes, which is understandable. Sometimes the assets belonging to a loved one are critically necessary to helping a family make ends meet. The good news is that in most cases, probate is relatively straightforward, and can be wrapped up in a fairly efficient amount of time.
Procedurally, there are various steps that must be followed in order to properly account for and distribute the deceased’s assets and debts. We can explain how this works, and what we can do to help, when we meet to discuss your case.
Is there any way to avoid the probate process?
The short answer is it depends – sometimes you can, and sometimes you can’t. It really depends upon the size of the estate, the various components of an estate plan, and other issues that we will need to evaluate on a case by case basis. It is likely, though, that some part of the estate will need to go through probate if the assets are over a specific amount.
We can look at estate plans that you have in place already to determine if there is anything that you can do to prevent items from going through the process. We can work with you to modify an estate plan if you need to take additional measures to protect your assets.
What if I am out-of-state and my loved one died in Nevada?
We can help you with this. It can be hard to just put your life on pause and come out to Nevada to wrap up a loved one’s affairs. We will be able to make appearances on your behalf and serve as a guide for the entire process. We understand that this is a difficult time for you, and we will do everything we can to help you get through this efficiently.
