Nebraska Small Estate Affidavit | Affidavit of Heirship

Real estate may not exceed $30,000 in value, and personal property such as bank accounts, heirlooms, and vehicles may not exceed $50,000 in value. Successors may file 30 days after their loved one passes and collect any debts owed to the decedent.

Small Estate Affidavit: The Nevada small estate affidavit allows successors to claim a decedent’s real estate and avoid probate court as long as the property does not exceed $30,000 in value.
