Filing for Divorce in Nevada

Nevada is a no-fault divorce state – this means that partners can file for divorce without proving that anyone did anything to cause it.

There will be a lot of important decisions to make during the divorce proceedings. Before a divorce can be finalized, significant aspects of your life after the marriage ends must be planned.

Our Las Vegas attorney can assist you with the decisions, which may involve:

  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Property/asset division

In a perfect world, you and your spouse will be able to come to an agreement on these topics. Should you go the route of mediation, we are happy to accompany you to the negotiations and represent you as necessary.

If you and your spouse cannot agree on certain decisions, your case will go to family court where a judge will make decisions on your behalf. The judge will be able to determine who gets custody of your children, how much you will pay or receive in alimony or child support, and how your property and debts will be divided. During trial, our Las Vegas attorney can protect your rights and fight for a favorable outcome that is in you and your children’s best interests.

Reasons to Hire a Divorce Attorney

The “do-it-yourself” movement is alive and well in America these days, which makes people wonder if they need to hire a lawyer for their divorce. Divorce, especially when there are children involved, can be an unexpectedly complex process. Even in a seemingly simple divorce – with no children and few assets to deal with – small mistakes can have a huge impact. Like virtually all matters of legal consequence, then, divorce is generally best left to the experts.

  • Attention to the details

The devil is in the details when it comes to divorce, and an experienced lawyer thinks about and plans for those details. It is not the details you put into your divorce decree, but the details you leave out of it, that will cause years of litigation down the road.

  • Your time is valuable

If you had nothing but free time, perhaps you could spend hours learning about the divorce filing requirements, crunching the numbers, standing in line at the legal self-help center, etc. But if you’re like most divorce litigants, you have plenty of other things to occupy your time. A good lawyer will make the process as simple and painless for you as it can possibly be, allowing you to keep on with your life.

  • Credibility

Here in Southern Nevada, there are only a relatively small number of attorneys who practice family law with any frequency. These lawyers and the judges see each other in court all the time, while you have likely never even met one of them. That personal familiarity breeds trust and credibility. Bring your own advocate, so as not to be outgunned or ignored.

  • Consolidation of costs

If you and your spouse are treating each other with respect and have agreed on the major issues raised by your divorce, a single attorney can under some circumstances represent both of you in a stipulated or negotiated divorce process. Why hire two attorneys, each with his or her own fees, when you can hire just one, and share the costs? A good attorney can help both of you work through any sticking points and avoid leaving the decision-making to the whims of a judge.

  • Efficiency

No one wants to spend months or even years trying to wind down a bad marriage. But many divorce litigants who take a DIY approach end up doing just that. In the hands of competent divorce counsel, even a highly contentious and complex divorce can usually be reduced to a decree in under six months, and a stipulated divorce can usually be accomplished in under thirty days. While there are of course exceptions to these general rules, a good lawyer will always strive to ensure that the process proceeds as quickly and efficiently – and that the resulting divorce decree provides as much finality and certainty as possible.
