Who gets your property if you die without a will in Nevada?

Your spouse inherits community property, but they may have to share assets with children or siblings.

Disposition of property without a will is complex, so it’s always best to prepare official documents stating your last wishes.
Is it better to have a will or a trust?
Whether it is better to have a will or a trust depends on your specific circumstances and what you want to accomplish.
