This is the final post in my series discussing unique issues that the Court may have to address during a Las Vegas divorce. While the majority of divorces deal with property issues, child custody, child support, and spousal support, certain issues and situations can make the process more complicated. Throughout this series I have attempted to shed light on certain issues which are not commonly discussed. My goal with this series was to make those who fall into these categories feel less alone, and to give them an idea of how the Clark County Family Court will approach their situation during a divorce.
During this series I have provided a detailed discussion on such issues as:
- How a divorce proceeds if one partner is undocumented and living in the country illegally
- How same-sex divorce will be affected following the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage
- How child custody is impacted when one partner has dual citizenship and wishes to relocate outside of the country
- Issues that should be considered if one partner has a chronic illness or physical disability
- Why the Court may have to step in if a partner has a head trauma or is mentally incapacitated
If you belong to one or more of these specialized populations, it is important to contact an attorney who understands how these issue will impact your divorce case. You should bring up these issues with your family law attorney as soon as possible so that you can plan for any delays, additional discovery, or additional paperwork that will be required for your divorce. Your attorney may have several questions regarding you, your partner, and your goals for the separation. If you ever have a unique situation it is important to disclose that to your attorney right away, even if you do not believe it will have any impact on your case.
