Property Division in Nevada
Counsel From Aggressive Henderson Divorce Attorneys
Are you facing a divorce? Are you concerned about receiving your fair share
of your marital property? If so, it is advised that you speak skilled
legal counsel. Nevada is considered a "community property" state,
which means that nearly every asset accumulated in the duration of a marriage
is considered in the divorce process.
McDonald Law Offices, PLLC, we are ready to hear the concerns and goals of our divorce clients. There
is no "one-size-fits" all approach to this practice area and
our skilled and attentive Henderson divorce lawyers pride themselves on
a tailored, personalized approach to our work. When it comes to property
division, we are ready to put forth a reasonable and compelling claim
to assets that mean the most to our clients during this uncertain time
in their lives.

Understanding Community Property
No matter what the circumstances of the divorce are, Nevada courts will
endeavor to divide marital property evenly between each spouse. However,
there are exceptions to the rule and not every asset in a marriage is
considered "community property"—some of it can be considered separate.
- Examples of separate property include:
- Civil court recoveries (such as personal injury compensation)
- Assets acquired before the marriage
These are not always black and white rules and some assets that are considered
"separate" can become commingled—and hence eligible for
potential division—over the course of the marriage. No matter what
your circumstances are and what assets you are looking to retain after
your divorce, our firm is ready to listen and develop an approach that
makes securing the property you deserve a priority.
