Q: My grandfather passed away in Nevada, no surviving spouse. He had two daughters.
My mother( his daughter) is deceased and my surviving aunt. My mother had three children, one is deceased, the other wants nothing to do with my grandfather's estate and the other child is me. What will be the intestate distribution in Nevada?
A: 50% will to your mother's descendants. If your deceased sibling left children, 1/3 of your mother's share will go to those children equally. If your deceased sibling died without leaving any descendants, one half of your mother's 50% share goes to you and the other surviving sibling who is free to Re-Assign his or her interest to you, but that other surviving sibling will have to sign some paperwork.
50% will go to your aunt.
