Uncontested Divorce in Nevada
Divorce occurs when one or both of the parties decide they no longer wish to be married. The important detail here is that only one party is required to make this decision. Nevada does not require any grounds for divorce aside from incompatibility. You may have heard that Nevada is a “no fault” state. This means that the law does not require there to be an at-fault party to a divorce.
An uncontested divorce is a matter where the parties are in complete agreement on all terms of the divorce but want to be represented by an attorney, either to make sure the process is done correctly, or for peace of mind. Uncontested divorces generally move along faster than ones that are contested, although many factors can affect the overall time frame of a divorce matter.
Many family law clients go into a matter thinking it is an amicable, uncontested legal issue, only to have the situation sour very rapidly into a heated contested divorce or child custody dispute. In this case, it’s best to hire the services of a Las Vegas contested divorce attorney who has extensive experience with the court system in and around the area.
If you think you may have an uncontested matter but want advice on whether the agreement is fair or complies with the law, you should schedule a meeting with a Las Vegas divorce attorney for review of the agreement.
