If you can determine where the asset is w/o a "research firm" you don't need to pay them. The Las Vegas (Clark County) probate judge does not approve of fees over 10% to a research firm. You can Google around until you get to the State Treasurer's unclaimed property website. There may even be a county website for unclaimed property. If you can locate the assets that way you don't need to pay a "research firm." Either way, you will need a lawyer to do the estate's probate if the amount of money...

The crime is cashing the stolen check. If everybody could escape from being charged with a crime by paying the money back, then everyone would go out and cash stolen checks and if they were caught they would simply pay the money back.

Jonathan Craig Reed's answer
The Clerk's office will be happy to take an original will from you if you advise that the person who wrote the will has died and simply hand it to them along with the filing fee. In Clark County (home to Las Vegas) the filing fee is $18. However, they will not accept a copy for filing.

Q: Husband has passed, resident of Nevada. Assets & home are jointly held. Do I need a probate lawyer?

1 Answer | Asked in Probate for Nevada on
Answered on Sep 13, 2018
Jonathan Craig Reed's answer
Provided that the home is held in joint tenancy and ditto for other assets, you own everything without probate. Your phrase "jointly held" can be tricky. Unless the deed to the home contains the words, "joint tenancy" or "with right of survivorship" half of the home will have to thru probate. (I assume this is a Nevada home.) The good news is that in almost all case in which a husband and wife take title to real estate in Nevada one of the two magic phrases just cited is used in the deed.
