Administration of Estates

There are four different types of probate administration (ways to distribute the decedent's estate) in Nevada. In order to decide which probate administration is appropriate, you will need to know the value of the estate. The value of the estate is the gross value of all the decedent's assets minus debts and mortgages that the decedent owed. Once you know the value of the estate, choose one of the links below.


If you do not know the value of the estate or what the estate includes then you have to look to finding or being appointed a special administrator. Visit here for more information on special administrators.
