Unfortunately, there is no flat fee for divorce costs – a number of factors can come into play and impact the cost and timeline of your divorce. The type of divorce, if there are children involved, and other complex legal matters can significantly influence how expensive your divorce is. At McDonald Law Offices, PLLC you can trust that our attorneys will work tirelessly to ensure that your divorce is cost effective and involves as little stress as possible.
If you are filing for divorce in Nevada, at least one of the parties must have lived in the state for a minimum of 6 weeks before filing for divorce. The court will ask that you prove your residency with an official document, known as the Affidavit of Resident Witness. The Affidavit must be signed in front of a notary by an individual who knows that you’ve been living in Nevada for at least 6 weeks before the divorce was filed.
Were your assets owned separately or together? In the years before your marriage, it’s likely you’ve acquired a number of premarital assets. During your marriage, you and your spouse have collected community property that the court will split up evenly during a divorce. It’s important to note, however, that not every asset in a marriage is considered community property. Because these rules are not always black and white, it’s important that you retain representation from a skilled and experienced divorce attorney.
Alimony, otherwise known as spousal support, is awarded in Nevada divorces. There are four types of alimony that can be awarded in Nevada – temporary maintenance, rehabilitative maintenance, temporary alimony, and permanent alimony.
Even if you and your spouse are in agreement of the terms of your divorce, it isn’t to say that you and your spouse will agree on everything. It’s very likely that you will encounter legal obstacles that require the skilled guidance of a dedicated legal professional. At McDonald Law Offices, PLLC our Henderson divorce attorneys offer the unparalleled legal service you need and deserve during this difficult time.
