Nevada Divorce Facts

When going through a divorce in in Nevada, it's helpful to have some key information. Below you will find some of the most important facts everyone getting a divorce in the state of Nevada should know. The facts listed here are only a selected few of the more comprehensive set of Nevada Divorce Laws available for your reference. Remember, every state's law is different, and if you're not sure about a law in your state, you should ask a qualified Nevada Divorce Professional.

  • Nevada does not have a very strict residency requirement. The court requires that one of the spouses live in the state for at least six weeks immediately before filing for divorce.
  • Nevada is a community property state, which means that unless the spouses agree to divide the marital property differently, the court will split it 50/50 between them.
  • The court may award alimony to either spouse. A spouse seeking to obtain alimony must specifically request it in the complaint. In determining the need, duration and amount of maintenance, the court considers the faults and merits of each spouse (Nevada is one of only a few states that consider the misconduct of a spouse), the financial condition of each spouse after the divorce, the actual ownership of property being used for spousal support, the need of support for schooling, training or education in order to get a job, career, or profession, and the career enhancements obtained during the marriage as a result of efforts by the spouse requesting support.
  • In determining child custody, the court considers the wishes of the child, if the child is old enough and capable of making an intelligent choice, and any history of domestic violence in either parent or any other person seeking custody.
  • Both parents must support their minor children. Child support is based on the Nevada Child Support Guidelines, which considers the cost of health insurance, the cost of child care, any special educational needs of the child, the age of the child, the legal responsibility of the parents for the support of others (such as elderly parents or other minor children who are not the product of the marriage), and the amount of time the child spends with each parent.
