Filing For Divorce In Nevada
In order to file for divorce in Nevada, you must live in Nevada for at least six weeks and plan to remain in Nevada before filing for a divorce. If you are in the military or are a resident outside of Nevada you may still file for divorce as long as the defendant/spouse lives in Nevada. Divorces cases may include the following factors: child custody, child support, alimony, or spousal support. Other things to consider while filing for divorce is the splitting up of property, finances, and other investments. Mathew Work, a Nevada lawyer, can help you file for divorce and help keep your best interests in mind. He and his firm continually rank as one of the best family law and divorce firms in Reno, Nevada.
Ground For Divorce:
There are a few grounds for divorce, no-fault, and at-fault divorce. In Washoe County, a no-fault divorce is when the wife and husband have lived separated or apart for one year. This does not include cohabitation which is separation but still living in the same house. At the discretion of the court, an absolute decree of divorce may be granted. An at-fault divorce is when one party was considered insane at least two years prior to the commitment of marriage. Corroborating evidence must be presented to the court in order to proceed with an insanity plea.
Alimony In Nevada:
Alimony and child support are on a case to case basis on how much someone has to pay to the other party. Child support can help pay for childcare, insurance, special needs education (e.g. speech or therapy needed to help benefit the child), transportation to visit the other parent, and basic needs like food, clothing, and shelter. Property and other assets may need to be divided. All these issues must be resolved or agreed upon before a judge signs the Final Decree of Divorce and it is filed placed in the District Court Clerk’s office. A new marriage cannot take place until this is completed. If you are in need of a Divorce Attorney, please contact Carlson & Work today to speak with Rebecca Carlson or Mathew Work.
