Naimi Mullins Law Group Divorce

Las Vegas Divorce Attorneys

When you face divorce, working with a highly qualified divorce lawyer can make all the difference in protecting your best interests, parental rights, and all you have worked hard to achieve. 

Data taken from many surveys show divorce to be the second most stressful event in life (after the loss of a loved one) for most people. The process of breaking up a marriage is similar to losing a loved one, as it involves dissolving your most personal and intimate relationship, which is commonly a life-changing event. 

You will likely face many decisions about the details and factors of your divorce, from how to fairly divide marital property and debt to how to arrange child custody when minor children are involved. These can be problematic matters, often fraught with indecision, conflict, and uncertainty about the legal process and how courts determine outcomes.

At Naimi Mullins Law Group, we understand your concerns, anxieties, and confusion. Our team is here to equip you with the tools and advocacy you need to fight for your rights and reach a beneficial result for you and your family. We provide compassionate human support while giving you the objectivity and professional counsel to make tough but intelligent decisions. 

We use our negotiation skills and mediation practice to help you resolve your divorce as amicably as possible; this enables you to avoid the time, expense, and stress of a courtroom trial. However, where needed, our divorce attorneys are skilled trial lawyers who can provide comprehensive representation before family court judges.

Divorce in Nevada

The Nevada divorce process begins when one spouse files a Complaint for Divorce with the district court. Nevada is a "no-fault" divorce state, which means that the party seeking divorce does not have to prove wrongdoing by the other spouse; instead, one can cite irreconcilable differences. 

A divorce may also be obtained if you and your spouse have lived separately and apart for at least one year without cohabitation. Additionally, a divorce may be granted on the grounds of insanity, but this is less common and requires that the insanity existed for at least two years before the divorce filing.

Once the paperwork is filed, the other spouse can respond. If both parties can agree on terms like property division, alimony, child support, and custody, they can file an uncontested divorce, which tends to be quicker and less costly. 

However, in contested cases, where agreement cannot be reached, the court will set a date for a hearing, and it may take several months or even years, depending on the case’s complexity, before the divorce is finalized.

How Long Does a Divorce Take in Nevada?

The duration of a divorce in Nevada varies significantly and can range from as little as a few weeks for an uncontested divorce to several months or more for a contested case. The primary determinant is whether the divorce is uncontested—where both parties agree on all terms—or contested, which requires court intervention to resolve disputes. In an uncontested Nevada divorce, the process is swift because there's no need for a trial. However, the paperwork still requires careful preparation, and there's a mandatory waiting period after filing for the divorce to be finalized.

As mentioned earlier, contested divorces take longer due to the complexity of dividing assets, determining custody, and negotiating alimony or child support. Several factors can extend the timeline, including the court’s schedule, the availability of the involved parties to reach an agreement, and the need for detailed financial investigations or custody evaluations. High-asset divorces or those involving business valuations, real estate, and pensions add layers of complexity that require additional time to resolve. Additionally, if one party is uncooperative or there's a significant disagreement on key issues, mediation, arbitration, or a trial may be necessary, further extending the duration.

In essence, the timeline for a Nevada divorce is influenced by the specifics of the case, with uncontested divorces being quicker and less expensive, while contested divorces require more time and resources to address the complexities involved.

Resolving Complex Issues in Divorce

At Naimi Mullins Law Group, we address some of the most complex divorce cases, including:

  • High net worth divorce
  • Business owners divorce
  • Gray divorce and divorce over 50
  • International divorce
  • Military divorce
  • Same-sex and LGBTQIA divorce
  • Narcissist divorce

Most divorce and legal separation matters are contested or have some issues that the parties cannot agree upon. Your law firm must orchestrate the best support possible for your position in these cases. 

Our firm has established relationships with leading experts and specialists to provide vital testimony in complex or contested matters on your behalf, such as: 

  • Business valuation experts to determine the value of a community business
  • Forensic accountants to trace hidden assets, establish marital waste, and/or marital/separate property that has been commingled
  • Real estate appraisers to give opinions on the value of real property, including marital property, investment properties, vacation properties, business real estate, and rental properties
  • Vocational experts to help assess a person’s employability and earning potential to assist in determining alimony
  • Child therapists to help determine the best interests of the child concerning custody and relocation

While we have many resources when building your case, our attorneys will always establish a fiscally wise action plan at the beginning of your matter. This includes a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis of each proposed step, including hiring experts.

Planning for Divorce

In most cases, divorce is a decision that comes from months or years of consideration. If you have thought about divorce but are not yet sure, or if the timing isn’t right, there are still other things you can do to protect yourself in the future.

At Naimi Mullins Law Group, we encourage individuals to educate themselves on divorce. We can guide you in taking the necessary action to protect yourself now and in the future – regardless of when you plan to file for divorce.

Here are some critical steps you can take now:

Contact a Lawyer 

Only a family law attorney can give you informed legal advice. Even if you are not yet fully committed to a divorce, seeking legal counsel to assess your position and determine your options is wise. 

When you speak with our attorneys, we will listen to you and provide honest advice. Sometimes, after meeting with our attorneys, people realize their marriage may be saved, and we refer them to respected marriage counselors. 

In other cases, clients want to wait a few months or a year before taking any action. Regardless of your feelings, we will present concrete legal information and always advocate for your best interest.

Understand Your Finances

Before taking any legal action to initiate a divorce, it is beneficial to start assembling documentation regarding your financial picture, including:

  • Bank statements for both individual and joint accounts
  • Retirement account statements
  • Income tax returns
  • Pay stubs and other proofs of income
  • Credit card statements
  • Mortgage payments
  • Vehicle payments
  • Utility bills and other expenses

Create a detailed budget to know what your current monthly expenses are. Creating a tentative budget for your post-divorce living expenses can also be helpful.

Think About Your Goals 

Now is the time to start thinking about how you want your life to look after the divorce. Do you want to remain in your home? Do you want primary custody of your children? Do you need financial support? Prioritizing your legal objectives can help you once the divorce process is underway.

Other Considerations

You must do everything possible to protect yourself and your children during this time. Change your personal email, social media, and bank account passwords. If you need help dealing with the stress of your situation, consider contacting a therapist. If you are the victim of abuse, contact the police or a domestic abuse hotline right away.

What Not to Do 

If you are considering ending your marriage, it is essential to closely monitor your behavior and actions to avoid doing something that could hinder your legal position. You should not make any drastic financial moves. Do not bad-mouth your spouse on social media. Do not send angry or hostile emails or texts to your spouse. Do not leave aggressive voice messages. Do not speak negatively about your spouse to your children.
