On Thursday, March 19, the Eighth Judicial District Court issued Administrative Order 20-07, regarding the operations of the probate court in response to COVID-19.

Matters on the probate commissioner’s calendar that are opposed or require a hearing will be continued for at least 30 days and rescheduled as the court calendar allows. Matters that can be approved without a hearing will be on the approved list if no objection has been electronically filed and served by 9:30 a.m. on the day before the hearing.

The approved list may be accessed at: www.clarkcountycourts.us/departments/probate.

Probate matters on the judges’ calendars will be decided on the papers, heard by video or telephone, or continued at the discretion of the judge.

Sale confirmations currently set will be confirmed based on the papers filed with the court and without the necessity of placing the sale for public bid, unless a notice of intent to overbid is filed electronically.
