Las Vegas residents can remove executor in probate conflicts

There are many reasons that people in Las Vegas consider engaging in litigation during the probate process. Sometimes the amount of money or the method of distribution of assets cause probate conflicts. In other cases people may disagree with the actions of an executor and seek to have them removed from their duties. What many people may not consider, but which is an unfortunate reality for many families, is when there is the added component of the deceased having been murdered.

Nevada estate planning: considering online accounts

Traditionally, people in Nevada seeking to create an estate plan did so using paper and pencil. This old-school approach resulted with paper documents that an individual then placed in a safe spot so that their heirs and beneficiaries could access the documents when needed. They detailed their wishes about mostly tangible items and accounts. Now, those documents more and more often include a list of information relating to the online life of the individual doing the estate planning.

Probate and estate litigation: "Thriller" claim settled

Many readers in Las Vegas will recall that singer Michael Jackson's death in the summer of 2009 sparked much controversy. At the time of his death, the singer was being sued by several people and owed an estimated $500 million in debts. After his death, his estate has become the subject of probate and estate litigation. This litigation has included a suit by John Landis and others regarding the world-famous music video of the song, Thriller.

Estate planning may protect the family future in Las Vegas

There are many reasons that some in Las Vegas seek to avoid estate planning. Often their avoidance is based on the lack of desire to consider their own mortality. However, as at least one authority notes, estate planning can help to ensure that your heirs and beneficiaries know what your wishes are at the time of your death or incapacity, and are equipped to handle the administration or probate process. One of the first, and perhaps the most important, decisions made may be choosing who will execute the wishes.
