Handling Your Family Matters in Nevada
Whether you are filing for divorce or seeking guardianship of a child, you deserve reliable representation and compassionate support from start to finish. At SmartLaw Las Vegas, we strive to be your partner and your guide in this experience, helping you navigate the legal process and overcome any bumps in the road along the way.
Our firm can assist you with:
- Legal separation
- Property division
- Child custody or child support
We can also help you stave off some of the unpleasantness of divorce ahead of time through prenuptial and marital settlement agreements. Such agreements are also beneficial in the event one spouse passes away before the other.
Important family laws to be aware of in Nevada include:
- Nevada is a “no-fault” state when it comes to divorce, meaning you do not need a reason or “grounds” for divorce such as adultery or insanity to file.
- Nevada’s child custody laws allow for joint custody and grandparent visitation rights—however, the court will ultimately consider the child's wishes before deciding custody terms.
- When a child’s parents don’t live together, the parent who has physical custody is entitled to receive a portion of the cost of childcare, support, education, and maintenance from the other parent.
- Under the state’s community property system, a person’s separate property remains separate even after marriage—and divorce. A couple’s community property (assets and debts acquired during the marriage) are usually automatically presumed to belong equally to both spouses.
- If a couple going through a divorce is unable to mutually agree on how their shared assets should be split, the court will divide their property for them according to state law.
