WHAT IS PROBATE?
When a person dies, they usually indicate someone in their will to handle their estate. The term “probate” covers the legal process of estate administration, including the courts, taxes, estate assets and debts. Understanding probate can be challenging, but you may have to complete the following steps:
- File a petition with the court to begin the probate process
- Send notice that the estate is in probate to beneficiaries, creditors, and heirs
- Inventory and appraise all estate assets
- Pay bills, debts, and taxes
- Distribute assets as defined in the will and court orders
- Ask the probate court to close the estate
WHEN SHOULD YOU CALL A PROBATE ATTORNEY IN HENDERSON?
Understanding the probate process can be challenging, especially during the distressing time when a loved one has passed. An experienced and professional probate attorney can advise an executor of the estate about all legal matters. If there isn’t will, your probate attorney can ensure the estate is distributed according to Nevada law, or the laws from the state where the estate is located. Most people get a probate attorney at the beginning of the process, but Williams Starbuck can assist whenever you need help.
