Collaborative Divorce FAQs (Pt. 3)

Wrapping up our three-part blog series Collaborative Divorce FAQs, below we will answer some final questions regarding the collaborative divorce process in Nevada.

Q – What kind of information has to be provided during collaborative divorce?

A – Pretty much all of the information that would come to light during traditional divorce but without all of the formal discovery proceedings. Specifically, the types of information that will need to be reviewed as part of the collaborative divorce will include:

  • Bank account information
  • Mortgage information
  • Any debt-related information
  • Any other marital assets that a couple owns.

Additionally, if a couple has children and working out custody issues will be part of the collaborative divorce proceedings, then any relevant information regarding the children and issues either couple has regarding custody will also need to come to light.

The bottom line is that one of the points of collaborative divorce is honesty, so couples may not want to pursue this option for their divorce if either party is concerned that the other will be dishonest when it comes to disclosing any information necessary to resolve the divorce.

Q – What if I suspect my spouse is hiding assets during our collaborative divorce?

A – As explained above, if you think your spouse may be hiding certain marital assets from the divorce proceedings, then it may be time to consider options other than collaborative divorce for moving forward. The premise of collaborative divorce is mutual respect and trust between a couple, which means that neither party should conceal assets when pursuing this option.

However, if it does come to light that someone involved in collaborative divorce (or traditional divorce) has intentionally concealed some marital asset, there are some legal options people can pursue in these cases, and the Las Vegas divorce lawyers at RIGHT Lawyers can help ensure that these endeavors are as successful as possible.

Q – Should I hire an attorney to help me with my collaborative divorce?

A – Yes! Even though you may have a level of trust with your ex and you two may be able to communicate with each other quite well, having an experienced collaborative divorce attorney on your side during this process will be critical to:

  • Ensuring that your best interests are fully protected throughout the process (and that you don’t end up agreeing to something that is not favorable to you)
  • Resolving any disputes when they may arise during the collaborative divorce process
  • Ensuring that this process is resolved as efficiently and favorably as possible.
