Changes to the Probate Process in Nevada
Prior to 2011, all probate was court supervised and mandatory. Now, there is the option to opt out and have non-supervised proceedings in certain situations. This is often useful for smaller estates or estates without any controversies. Eliminating court proceedings can reduce the administrative expense and expedite the probate process. The attorneys at our firm can advise on whether this is in the best interests of the estate.
