Timothy Denison's answer Yes. There is still an equitable interest that you should list as an asset on your petition. Consult your Bankruptcy lawyer as to the further ramifications of the interest, but you should list it out of an abundance of caution.
Jonathan Craig Reed's answer You can't get title with an affidavit. You will need to do a probate. The proper value of the estate is the value of the home at the time of your mother's death which is probably a lot less than the current value. The Court will accept the Zillow.com value and the Zillow.com website usually lets you see the value for the last five years, although when I checked a local house right now to answer your question, Zillow.com wasn't giving me the price history. However, I mention the value at the...

Jonathan Craig Reed's answer The easy answer is that if the house was truly held in joint tenancy by Mom and Dad, Dad owns the whole house upon Mom's death. (You or your lawyer can file an Affidavit of Death of Joint Tenant with attached death certificates on both to move the ownership from joint to your father's estate.)
The second easy answer is that at least as to your father's half of the house, his daughter, your half sister, is entitled to share equally with you.

Delwyn E. Webber's answer We typically use the Zillow value - just keep in mind if Zillow is used, and an appraisal is done which puts it over the statutory limit, you will need to convert the probate.
As the value of the house is in excess of $100,000.00, you will need to open a Summary Administration and go through the motions through the Court to have the house transferred to yourself as sole heir.
You mentioned that you own the property as 'community property' - did you mean 'joint tenants'? If you are joint tenants then the property will revert to the surviving joint tenant(s) upon recording of an Affidavit Terminating the Joint Tenancy.
Although you provided no information regarding the other assets, typically if they are less than $25,000 they should be able to be transferred pursuant to a small estate affidavit.

Kelli Y Allen's answer Unfortunately, you are in the situation of a large number of young people who need a change in the immigration laws. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program) applies to your situation, but because of the President's executive order, no new DACA applications are being accepted. This is currently being reviewed by the courts, so there is the possibility that DACA applications will resume. If you hear in the news that has happened, contact an immigration lawyer immediately....
Peter Munsing's answer Yes--that's an unantiicpated danger he should have warned of separately. Contact a member of the Nv. Trial Lawyers Assn for the county where it happened--they give free consults.
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Nevada and can't advise on the specifics of Nevada civil/criminal procedure, but your question hasn't been picked up in four weeks. As a general matter throughout the nation, the criminal prosecution is a separate action from the civil proceeding, resulting in injury claimants typically not awaiting the outcome of the criminal prosecution.
1. Any person having possession of a will shall, within 30 days after knowledge of the death of the person who executed the will, deliver it to the clerk of the district court which has jurisdiction of the case or to the personal representative named in the will.
2. Any person named as personal representative in a will shall, within 30 days after the death of the testator, or within 30 days after...
Malcolm P. LaVergne's answer Not sure about "cleaned," but technically you can have your record "sealed" in Nevada for a Category E felony after two years from the date of your release from custody or release from parole/probation whichever occurs later. See NRS 179.245(1)(c). "A category E felony after 2 years from the date of release from actual custody or discharge from parole or probation, whichever occurs later." For example, if you were place on probation for three years from a category E felony (likely scenario),...

Jonathan Craig Reed's answer The mortgage company may have a right to call the mortgage as the original owner is no longer the owner. However, the estate does qualify for a set-aside in Nevada based on the facts you have provided. You have a legal right to try to do this yourself, but most people will need to hire a lawyer. If the matter is uncontested, my fee including costs would be $1950 to do this.
Jonathan Craig Reed's answer Our firm does uncontested probates at discounted rates through out Nevada if the are Set Asides, Summary Administration or General Administration. These terms are explained on our website, probatenevada.net
If the probate is contested (because family members are fighting) you want to hire a Reno lawyer if the estate will be probated in Reno.
In some cases, probate is not necessary. For example, if your father put his assets into a trust, or financial accounts with payable on...
