Q: How do I file a request for special notice in a probate case in Nevada without a lawyer?
My brother is the Administrator in my parents estate in Nevada. He isn't including me in anything. I would like to file a special notice request but do not have a lawyer. How do I go about it?
A: Filing a request for special notice in a Nevada probate case without a lawyer is feasible but requires careful navigation. Begin by gathering case information, such as the case number and jurisdiction, from your brother or the court clerk's office. Obtain the "Request for Special Notice (Probate)" form (DE-154) from the Nevada Judiciary website and carefully follow the instructions. Clearly articulate your reasons for the request, emphasizing your status as an interested person and any concerns about your brother's administration of the estate. Complete the form accurately, including your name, address, relationship to the deceased, and specific types of notices requested. File the form with the court clerk's office, keeping a copy for your records. Additionally, consider discussing concerns with your brother and exploring mediation before taking legal action, and practice patience as probate proceedings unfold.
