Minden Probate Attorneys

Do I Need to Go Through Probate?

In Nevada, if the deceased didn’t have a valid will or any estate planning documents in place, their estate generally goes through probate. Without a will, the distribution of the deceased’s assets will be based on Nevada’s intestate succession laws. Probate may also be required if the deceased had a will without any trusts to protect their assets. However, it’s possible that the estate may qualify for simplified probate procedures or even be exempt from probate, depending on certain criteria.

Several factors determine whether an estate goes through probate in Nevada, including the estate’s value, the type of assets involved, and any disputes or challenges to the will. Consulting with our Minden probate attorneys who are knowledgeable in probate law within your jurisdiction can give you a better idea of what will be required of you and what the process might look like depending on your unique circumstances.

Do I Really Need A Probate Attorney?

The short answer is no; you’re not legally required to have an attorney for your probate case. However, having one can significantly simplify the process, compared to doing it yourself. Not having an attorney to guide you through probate is like attempting to complete a complicated jigsaw puzzle without the picture on the box: possible, but far more frustrating and time-consuming than necessary.
