Can a No Fault Divorce Be Filed in Nevada?
Nevada is exclusively a no-fault divorce state, which means that it does not make divorce decrees based on the fault of either spouse. Instead, a couple can file for divorce using one of the following reasons:
- Incompatibility – If one spouse can demonstrate that the couple is no longer compatible and that there’s no reasonable chance that this will change, then this is a ground for divorce.
- Separate living – If a couple can’t demonstrate that they are incompatible, then they can get a divorce if they have lived in separate residences for at least one year.
- Legally insane – While this reason is less common, it is possible for one spouse to file for divorce if the other spouse has been deemed legally insane for at least two years.
Do You Need a Lawyer to Get a Divorce in Nevada?
There is no law that requires legal representation when filing for divorce in Nevada. However, people that choose to consult or retain the services of a lawyer may experience more success. This is because a legal expert can introduce options about your case that you may have been unaware of.
Even if your case is uncontested, and you agree to all terms of the divorce, consulting an attorney is in your best interests. At Ford & Friedman, we can help ease the headache of complex issues such as custody or asset division. Each state varies in laws and statutes, which may impact your case in ways different than others.
Additional reasons you will want to hire a lawyer for divorce include:
- Less stress over excess court documents
- Legal expertise
- Consistent communication and transparency
- If your spouse hires a lawyer, you will want to as well
- If you suspect your spouse is hiding assets
