Probate

Forms

We do not provide forms for the following case types: Set Aside, Summary Administration, and General Administration. These are complex cases that you may want to file with professional help from an attorney. See our FAQs for how to find legal help.

You may also choose to use another court's probate forms as a template (e.g., Eighth Judicial District Clark County Probate Forms). However, these forms need to be edited to comply with our local court rules or the case may be rejected.

Forms for Special Administration

In some instances, you may apply for appointment as a Special Administrator and for Letters of Special Administration (see NRS Chapter 140). This allows you to take certain actions with Court authority, but those actions and the results must be reported back to the Court in writing. Examples of actions allowed in a Special Administration include: entering property of the Decedent that you have been denied access to, discussing emergency financial matters with creditors or a mortgage company, and commencing a lawsuit on behalf of the deceased party. Special Administrations are temporary. A formal Petition to Administer the Estate will be required at a future date.
