Wills & Probate

Probating a Will in Henderson, Las Vegas and Boulder City

The attorney at Tyrell Law, PLLC are experienced in Nevada probate law. It is important to know who is responsible for handling the probate process. In most circumstances, the executor who is named in the will takes on this job. If there is no will, or the will fails to name an executor, the probate court names someone called an administrator to handle the process.  The job can also go to the closest capable relative or the person who inherits the bulk of the deceased person’s assets.

The court does not appoint an estate administrator if no formal probate proceeding is necessary. Instead, a close relative or friend serves as an informal estate representative. Normally, families and friends choose this person, and it is not uncommon for several people to share the responsibilities of paying debts, filing a final income tax return, and distributing property to the people who are supposed to get it.
