What to Do and What Not do Do During Your Divorce

Nevada Divorce: What to Expect

The prospect of divorcing your spouse may seem complicated and may be an issue of significant emotional distress to you, your spouse and your family. Any divorce has the potential to be highly complex and difficult, but our firm has the goal of moving you through the process in a swift and efficient manner. Knowing what to expect certainly reduces uncertainty and can relieve some of the stress associated with divorce. What can you expect during this process?

The first step is to schedule an appointment with an attorney. Upon conducting a thorough review of your case and discussing your particular goals and concerns, we can paint a clear picture of what to expect.

You will need to address sensitive issues in your divorce, such as property and asset division and child and spousal support. The approach taken in your case, a contested or uncontested divorce, will vary depending on your unique situation and relationship with your spouse. In some situations, I recommend that you consider mediation or negotiation as a way of resolving any potential disputes that may arise. If you and your spouse cannot reach your own agreement, your case may need to go to court. If this is the case, be sure you have an aggressive attorney who can protect your rights and present your interests in family court.

You should expect a process that will take anywhere from a few months to years, depending on the complexity of your marital estate and whether your case is settled inside or outside the courtroom. Divorce has the potential to be highly emotional and difficult to deal with, but with the appropriate approach by an experienced attorney it does not have to be this way.
