Unlike a divorce, which dissolves the bonds of marriage, an annulment results in an order stating that the marriage was never legitimate. Annulments may be obtained for such reasons as fraud, a party’s inability to consent to the marriage, or for religious reasons. The requirements for obtaining an annulment are very specific in Nevada.
Nevada state law provides that a husband and wife may legally separate without obtaining a divorce. In these “Separate Maintenance” cases, the court may grant child and spousal support, issue child custody orders and divide property.
Often, legal separation may be chosen over divorce when religious beliefs, health insurance coverage or other personal issues make divorce undesirable.
In Nevada, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to alimony. The state law requires only that alimony may be awarded in cases where it is “just and equitable”. The “just and equitable” standard gives the judge wide discretion when he or she is considering whether to award alimony. For this reason, it is extremely important to have an experienced alimony attorney on your side. There’s no substitution for experience, and we have over 20 years of experience of dealing with alimony in Las Vegas.
Often, one of the most complex issues in a divorce is the division of property. With over two decades of experience, we know the Nevada court system and the ‘ins and outs’ of the Nevada law. We can help you understand the options that will serve your best interests.
Nevada is a community property state, and most property acquired during the marriage is presumed to be community property. Unless compelling circumstances are present, Nevada law requires that community property be divided 50/50 upon divorce.
In Nevada, pre-marital property, as well as inheritances and gifts to one spouse received during the marriage, are generally considered separate property not subject to division upon divorce.
