A: In some cases, a probate case has to be filed in court but not in all cases. You should consult an attorney in person, who works in probate, or in real estate, or both, for guidance. The attorney should review the Will, the relevant real estate records, and any other relevant info before opining on exactly what will be needed.

A: Have you looked at the Nebraska Supreme Court's self-help center regarding estates?

There is a flow chart on there that explains the general process when there is an informal probate with a will. As you can see, there are a number of steps to this process and you may have additional steps depending on your specific situation. You should consult an attorney to assist you with this legal process. James Polack, who also answered your question, handles these types of cases in the Omaha area and might be a good person for you to reach out to.
