A: Assuming your mother was a raiders t of Nevada when she died, pursuant to Nevada intestate law, her deceased children’s grandchildren step into their deceased parent’s shoes. That being said, assuming your deceased siblings each had at least one child, the estate would be divided in four, on share for and your brother one share for the niece or nephew who is an only child, and one share to be divided equally between the set of siblings. If one of your deceased siblings had no children and one had 3, the estate would be divided into 3 shares, one each for you and brother and one for the three siblings. Hope that is helpful.
