Affidavit of Entitlement

The Affidavit of Entitlement is for super small estates or if you forgot to put one or two things into your trust. If the total estate value, meaning everything added up together, is less than $25,000 you don’t even have to go through probate court. Nevada Law provides for you and your fellow heirs can sign an affidavit of entitlement stating that you are the rightful heirs of the estate, that the estate had no debt (if they did have debt this may make this not an option) and that the value of the estate is less than $25,000. The bank or DMV then must honor that affidavit and distribute all assets to the heirs. It must be signed in front of a notary public and if you lie on it, you can be held in contempt of court.
