    Estate Account & Court Orders?

    Yes, in terms of estate planning, having joint owners of an account makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately, the deceased was a single owner of his bank account. The second the bank caught wind that the owner is deceased, they froze the account. This was unavoidable, because in order to discover the...

    Estate Account & Court Orders?

    Perhaps, others reading this may benefit from this experience. Since our case went through Nevada's Small Estate proceedings and the court ordered that we file for Set Aside Estate Without Administration, no executor/administrator has ever been appointed and no estate account was opened...

    Estate Account & Court Orders?

    Dandy Don: Thanks for your input. It is much appreciated. I understand the discovery process that Lettters of Special Administration entitle one to and the fact that one is not authorized to make payments or disburse any of the estate.

    How to file for letters of special administration without knowing estate value in Washoe County, NV

    We can certainly take a wild guess based on the lifestyle of the deceased. When I brought that up, the clerk was not happy, but would not indicate what else one can do in such a situation. The question then is, what happens when you file in one category, let's say estate < $20K, but then...

    How to file for letters of special administration without knowing estate value in Washoe County, NV

    We are trying to petition the court for letters of special administration in Washoe County Nevada so that we can discover the value of a relative's estate. He left no Will and since he was banking electronically we have absolutely no records of his bank accounts and his ex-employer won't reveal...
