Where do I file for divorce in Nevada?
Nevada law requires that you must be a Nevada resident for at least six (6) weeks prior to your filing for divorce. In addition, Nevada divorce law requires that your divorce be filed in the county within which you reside.
If you and your spouse have separated and now live in different counties or even in different states, you can still file for divorce where you live. However, we strongly suggest you meet with one of our experienced Las Vegas Divorce Lawyers to discuss the benefits of filing in Clark County, Nevada and to discuss the possible benefits of filing elsewhere.
Does my spouse get half if I Divorce in Nevada?
The answer is “it depends.” Under Nevada’s community property laws, assets and debts spouses acquire during marriage generally belong equally to both of them, and they must divide them equally in divorce. In diving assets and debts during a divorce, the Court will consider three (3) things:
Was the property acquired during the marriage with community funds?
What is the value of the property?
Should the property be divided equally?
The Court will consider a variety of factors when distributing assets and debts during a marriage. Therefore, it is important to have a knowledgeable and experienced Las Vegas divorce lawyer on your side.
How will the judge handle Custody during our Nevada Divorce?
This is a complicated and difficult question to answer and the answer largely depends upon your specific set of circumstances. As a general proposition, the Court will assume joint custody is in the best interest of your children at the time of the divorce. However, various factors can be considered for one party to be awarded primary physical custody such as: a nomination by a parent for one parent to have primary custody, history of domestic violence, history of child abuse or endangerment, abandonment, stability and other factors. Again, it is important to have an experienced Las Vegas Divorce Lawyer on your side to help navigate the complicated waters of child custody while going through a divorce.
