Do I File A Divorce or Legal Separation In Las Vegas?

This is a question we divorce lawyers get asked almost every day. Most think a legal separation is easier, or cheaper than a divorce. Others think a legal separation will be an easier way to transition through the divorce. They are mostly correct.

Legal separations are typically easier and cheaper compared to a divorce. A Las Vegas divorce, if contested, can take 6 or 8 months and cost tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. Legal separations are typically agreed to, so they are quicker and cost much less. Legal separations do have a few quirks. For a full discussion on whether to file a divorce or legal separation you should read Legal Separation Versus Divorce.

This is not the only question we get every day. Client’s going through a divorce or child custody matter have dozens, if not more. The questions will typically fall into one of five categories; divorce processchild custody, child support, division of property, and spousal support. Questions are the norm. Most clients have never gone through a divorce or custody hearing, so they have questions. I have been told by therapists, getting the answers is part of the “uncoupling” process. By finding the answers to your questions, it eases the anxiety of the unknown.

So, we have seen and been asked just about everything. This might be your first. Let’s share some of our experience by answering the most common questions we get.
