This article is being written to conclude and recap my series on the handling of uncontested divorces in Las Vegas, Nevada. I felt it necessary to write on this topic as many spouses are unsure of whether or not they can complete the uncontested process and what it entails. It was my goal, in writing this series, to provide information which will help people to better understand their given situation. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a family law attorney. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer. I pride myself on providing a high level of service and I look forward to speaking with you.
I have addressed a number of topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:
- Dividing community property in an uncontested divorce
- Setting alimony in an uncontested divorce
- Reaching agreed upon child custody and visitation
- Steps to complete after your divorce is finalized
I chose to write on these topics for a number of reasons. First, Nevada is a community property state. This means that assets and debts will generally belong to both spouses regardless of whose name they are in. Understanding that these assets and debts must be divided, and how Nevada law applies to such matters, is important to making sure you reach a fair outcome. Second, spousal support is one of the most contentious issues in any divorce case. Decisions, such as whether or not the support is modifiable, must be agreed upon in order to finalize your case. Third, there are many details which parents fail to include when completing a “do it yourself” divorce. This can lead to future litigation. Finally, ensuring that each side is going through with their requirements after a case is completed helps to prevent future litigation.
One point I stressed in each of these articles is the importance of retaining an attorney to assist you with the process. It is common for spouses to believe that counsel is not necessary as they are in agreement on all issues. Failing to consider all the possibilities, and properly completed court documents, often leads to people going back to Court after their divorce is finalized. Having experienced counsel can help to prevent this from happening.
