Estates with a few assets are not subject to the complex, expensive probate process.

In Nevada, if you the estate has less than $20,000, you do not need to go through probate.

Rather, you can complete a form called an Affidavit of Entitlement that will allow you to transfer assets, such as a bank account, without court involvement.

It is not necessary for a lawyer to complete this form, but we have skilled probate professionals on staff that will help with a few assets probate if you like.


You can obtain a copy of the form here.
