HOW DO I FILE A JOINT PETITION DIVORCE IN LAS VEGAS?
- In Las Vegas, a divorce is often filed in the form of a Joint Petition for Divorce (NRS 125.182) when both parties agree to all terms of the divorce, including child custody, child support, visitation, and property division (if applicable) and when both parties agree to sign the divorce documents.
- Both Husband and Wife must sign the documents in front of a notary (notary service are included with our attorney services)
- The resident of Las Vegas must sign the divorce documents in front of a Nevada notary. The other party may sign in front of a notary anywhere else
in the world. Most U.S. Consulates around the world offer notary services to both U.S. citizens as well as to anyone who needs to be notarized on American legal documents.
- From the time we have all the signed documents in our hands, it takes about one to two weeks to finalize a divorce. The average is about 10 days.
| how do i file aN UNCONTESTED Complaint for divorce (one signature divorce) IN LAS VEGAS?
- When filing a one-signature divorce, one party acts as Plaintiff (the person who signs the Complaint for Divorce), and serves the other party (we arrange the services of a process server for our clients) who becomes the Defendant.
- In some cases, the Defendant ignores receipt of the Complaint and does nothing, in which case the divorce continues as an uncontested matter. If this occurs, a Default is filed with the court on Day 22 after the date of personal service (through a process server) or after the last date of the publication of the Summons, if the Defendant could not be found to be personally served by the process server.
- Once the Default is granted, the Decree of Divorce is submitted for the judge's signature. Once the judge signs the Decree of Divorce, and the clerk files it, your divorce in Las Vegas becomes final.
- If your divorce proceeds as above, it is still considered an uncontested divorce
as per divorce statutes in Nevada
- Once your spouse has been properly served either in person or by publication, a Default is submitted to the court on Day 22 after the date of service or last date of publication. Once the Default is granted, your Decree of Divorce can be submitted for your judge's signature on the Nevada Decree of Divorce. Once the Decree is filed by the court clerk, your Nevada divorce is final.
| can't locate your spouse?
If you cannot locate your
spouse, you may still obtain a divorce through a default process
whereby the Defendant (your spouse) is "served by publication." This involves attempted service on your spouse by a process server, at your spouse's last-known address.
If the process server was unable to serve the Complaint for Divorce and Summons to your spouse, publication of the Summons in a newspaper, once a week for five weeks, will follow. This is considered proper service.
MEDIATION BEFORE FILING a divorce in las vegas
- Have you been in a long-term marriage, and, or, have a lot of assets, and wonder how to divide your property as a part of your divorce?
- Do you have a lot of debt and feel unsure as to how it should be divided?
- Do you wonder what is appropriate, proper and customary regarding child physical custody, visitation, and child support issues before you file your divorce?
If any of the above questions have come to your mind, consider divorce mediation before filing your uncontested divorce. It greatly simplifies your decision-making process and reassures you that you are making the right decisions when filing your divorce.
