unhappy couple signing documentsThis is the first post in a series of articles which will discuss common issues which arise during uncontested Las Vegas divorces. I have decided to write on this topic due to the fact that many couples think that they can complete the process relatively quickly, only to find that problems can arise. Retaining an experienced attorney to assist you with your matter can help to ensure that things go smoothly. The goal of my coming articles is to provide information which will assist people with better understanding the process. It is also my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of an attorney. If you are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.

I will be addressing multiple issues over my coming articles. Topics which I will address include:

  • Dividing marital property
  • Determining alimony
  • Reaching an agreement on child custody and visitation
  • Steps to take after your divorce is completed

There are multiple reasons why I have chosen to address these topics. First, Nevada is a community property state. Understanding what will be considered community property, and community debt, is important to ensuring that all necessary property issues are dealt with. Failing to properly resolve all property-related issues can mean having to go back to Court at some future date. Second, alimony is typically a hot-button topic between spouses. Agreeing on an amount, and whether it will be modifiable, is often a point of contention. Third, coming to a workable agreement on child custody will be crucial as each party must co-parent after the case is completed. Finally, there are often issues which must be dealt with post-divorce. This can include selling real estate, refinancing loans, etc.

One point I will be making in each of these articles is that it is important to retain an attorney to assist you if you are ending a marriage. If your case is not handled properly then you may have to go back to court to handle unresolved issues. It is also possible that you enter into an agreement without fully understanding the ramifications of doing so. Experienced counsel will take the steps necessary to learn about your situation and to consider all possible options for moving your situation forward. As a Las Vegas uncontested divorce lawyer, I am familiar with the handling of such matters. Contact me online or by telephone to schedule an initial consultation. I look forward to speaking with you.
