Nevada Quick Divorce Attorney

There is a myth that one can obtain a divorce in Nevada in one day. The myth comes from the fact that this used to actually be true. The population was smaller, the courts better staffed, fewer cases were being filed, there was less technology to deal with; yes, technology. As great as it is for keeping track of everything, in so far as filing a divorce, it has actually slowed down the process due to new court procedures made available by the new technology and put in place to make it easier to file and to keep better records. But it takes longer.

For instance, e-filing is now mandatory. Even if you walk into the courthouse, you must e-file your case at a computer kiosk rather than hand over the pleadings to a clerk. Once you've done that, you must wait for a court clerk to review it and assign a case number and email it to you. Only now can you move forward with your case.

In this office, we divide time between "before e-fling" and "after e-filing."We’ll use a joint petition divorce filing as a simple example of the process before and after.

How you could obtain a quick divorce (joint petition, both parties sign) BEFORE mandatory e-filing:

  • prepare the divorce documents
  • obtain clients' signatures
  • take all of the documents to Family Court
  • hand them personally to a court clerk who looked them over and assigned it a case number right then and there and handed you back filed/stamped copies of everything.
  • take a copy of each of the filed pleadings and the original final decree of divorce to the judge's office. Tell the judge's clerk that you need the divorce decree (signed by the judge) back as soon as possible. If the clerk said that the judge was too busy to attend to it for a few days, you could always just keep your documents and attend the next open court. • This is when a judge sat at court and dealt with “walk-in” cases. You could approach that judge and ask for your divorce to be granted right then and there. You’d leave the courtroom with a signed decree of divorce which you'd then walk over to the clerk's office for filing and obtain a filed/stamped copy. And there you were: divorced. All of this could actually happen in just one day. You’d have spent pretty much your whole day on it, but you’d have been divorced in a day.

How you can obtain a quick divorce (joint petition, both parties sign) AFTER mandatory e-filing:

  • prepare the divorce documents.
  • obtain clients' signatures.
  • scan all documents in preparation for e-filing.
  • access the court’s online database and e-file the joint petition.
  • wait for the court clerk to process the e-filing and email back a filed/stamped copy of the joint petition with a case number and the department (judge) to which it has been assigned.
  • take the decree to court and leave it with the judge's clerk and wait for the judge to sign it (anywhere from a day to a couple of weeks), and either e-file it for you, or leave it at court for you to pick up and e-file yourself.

In our office, we experience fluctuating turn-around times; a signed (or filed) decree is returned to us in anywhere from about 2 to 3 days to about 2 weeks (sometimes, it takes even a bit longer than that) after we get the decree to court for the judge’s signature, sometimes a bit longer. We send the decree to court on either the same day we receive the filed/stamped copy of the joint petition from the court, or the next day at the latest, so it’s not held up in our office. The actual length of time it takes to have your divorce granted really depends on how busy the court is and how busy the judge to whom the case is assigned happens to be at the time of your filing.

The bottom line is that you CAN still obtain a quick divorce in Nevada when both parties agree to sign the documents, especially compared to other states. It just takes more than a day these days.

  WHAT IS A JOINT PETITION DIVORCE (two signature divorce)?

  • In Nevada, a divorce is often filed in the form of a Joint Petition for Divorce (NRS 125.182) when both parties agree to a divorce. A Joint Petition is the simplest way to file and obtain a divorce in Nevada 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 parties must sign the Joint Petition and the Decree of Divorce as per divorce laws. Once the Joint Petition and Decree have been signed and notarized, the Nevada Joint Petition for Divorce is filed with the Court and the Decree submitted for the signature of the judge assigned to your case. Once the judge signs the Decree, the clerk files it and your divorce becomes final. Another necessary document that must be filed before the judge will sign your Decree is the Resident Witness Affidavit, a sworn affidavit by another Nevada resident. The resident Joint Petitioner in a divorce must sign the divorce documents in front of a Nevada notary. We notarize divorce documents for free in our office for our divorce clients. The non-resident may sign in front of a notary wherever he or she happens to live in the world.

  • Your divorce can be obtained in as little as one week using a Joint Petition depending on the judge to whom your divorce case gets assigned. , though it can take up to three weeks if the court is extremely busy or the judge to whom your case was assigned is also very busy. The average is about 10 days.

  what is a Complaint for divorce (one signature divorce)?
  • When filing a one-signature divorce in Nevada, one party acts as Plaintiff (the person who signs the Complaint for Divorce), and serves the other party (we arrange a process server for you) who becomes the Defendant.

  • In some cases, the Defendant ignores receipt of the Nevada Divorce Complaint and does nothing, in which case the divorce continues as an uncontested divorce 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 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 becomes final.

  • If your divorce proceeds as above, it is still considered an uncontested divorce as per Nevada statutes.

  • If the Defendant files an Answer denying the allegations in the Complaint for Divorce, the divorce is now considered contested. If your divorce is contested, a court hearing becomes necessary. If this occurs, we recommend that you hire a competent and experienced lawyer who practices Nevada family law in order to protect your rights. Mr. Smith is available to continue as your attorney of record on your contested Nevada divorce.

  • 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 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, followed by publication of the
      Summons in a newspaper, once a week for five weeks.

  • If the process server truly could not find your spouse and therefore could not personally serve the Divorce Complaint and Summons to your spouse.

  resident witness

  • At least one of the parties in the divorce must have resided in Nevada for a minimum of six weeks just prior to the filing of either a Joint Petition Divorce, or a Complaint for Divorce as per Nevada Revised Statute (NRS 125.020).
  • The Court requires proof of your residency in the form of a Resident Witness Affidavit. The individual who signs this sworn Affidavit in front of a notary must be another Nevada resident who knows you to have lived in Nevada for a minimum of six weeks before the date your divorce was filed.
