Prompt Action, Realistic Attitudes
Probate is commonly considered to be best avoided when possible. However, many Nevada decedents do not recognize the value of thorough estate planning techniques, so probate becomes essential in these cases. Their beneficiaries could consequently face this difficult process before they can access their inheritance.
Unfortunately, the legal structure of probate is complex. Therefore, the personal representative and beneficiaries of the estate may need to wait several months for probate court proceedings to conclude.
Despite this potential obstacle, our firm vigilantly monitors the status of probate cases and responds with timely, accurate documentation throughout the process. We keep our clients aware of the patience that probate may require while working toward closing the estate as expeditiously as the law allows.
