Joint Petition Divorce
- In Nevada, a divorce is often filed in the form of a Joint Petition (NRS 125.182) It is the simplest way to file and obtain a divorce 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 papers.
- Both parties must sign the joint petition and the decree to have the joint petition divorce granted–this is Nevada law.
- Once these have been signed and notarized, the joint petition divorce is filed with the Court and the divorce decree submitted for the signature of the judge assigned to your case.
- Once the judge signs the decree of divorce, the clerk files it and your Nevada divorce becomes final.
- Your divorce can be obtained in a short amount of time when you file a Joint Petition Divorce. The exact amount of time depends a lot on your judge and his or her work pace, as well as how busy the court happens to be at the time your case is filed. The average length of time is 10-15 days.
- We have the experience and the knowledge to make your Joint Petition Divorce run as smoothly as possible.
Always an excellent job!
I met Mr. Smith several years ago. Not only is he a great attorney, but now a good friend. I initially had him help me with family law matters and corporate matters and he always did an excellent job. One of the very few good attorneys left out there.
