How long does a divorce take?

The time depends on whether you are looking at an uncontested divorce or contested divorce. Uncontested divorce, where you and your spouse agree to the terms of the divorce, takes between two weeks. The documents can be drafted in two days. The remaining time is submitting the documents to the judge and waiting for a final approval of the divorce decree. Contested divorces, where you and your spouse cannot agree to the terms of the divorce can take three months or twelve months. Contested divorces take longer because you must gather all your evidence and submit it the judge to make a final decision. The process of gathering and submitting evidence called discovery and can take months to complete.

What are the costs of a divorce?

Uncontested divorce fees range between $1,000 and $3,000. If you have assets under $10,000 and no children the fee is $1,000. The fee increases from there depending on the time needed to finalize the terms of the divorce. Contested divorces start at $3,000 and then increase depending on the complexity, and amount of contested issues. Some contested divorces can be $15,000 or more although that is not the average. The average contested divorce is $6,000.

A legal separation is not less expensive or quicker than a divorce. A legal separation is not needed for a spouse to move out of the house. A legal separation is a document filed with the court dividing all your assets and debts. The document can include issues like child support, or alimony. Legal separations can be uncontested, where you spouse agrees with it, or they can be contested, where a judge orders a legal separation instead of a divorce. The typical reasons to get a legal seperation is to stay on your spouse’s health insurance. With a legal separation you have divided all your assets, but you are still legally married and can stay on a spouse’s health insurance plan.

Can I file the divorce in Nevada?

Divorce and custody matters are resolved under state law. With each state having there own divoce laws you can only file a divorce or custody action in a state that you or your spouse physically live in. This is called jurisdiction. If you don’t live in that state then they don’t have jurisdiction, or authority to grant a divorce. In Nevada you or your spouse must have live in Nevada for six weeks prior to the divorce being filed. If you are filing with children the children must live in Nevada for six months prior to filing the divorce.

    About Summerlin

    The Las Vegas metropolitan area is home to over 2 million people, with 603,000 living in Las Vegas proper.  Summerlin is an affluent planned community in the Las Vegas Valley of Nevada. It lies at the edge of the Spring Mountains and Red Rock Canyon, on the western periphery of Las Vegas, Nevada in unincorporated Clark County.  Summerlin is not a separate incorporated city with it’s own city hall or courts.   Summerlin is part of Las Vegas municipality and Clark County courts system.

    Las Vegas was officially founded in 1905, then incorporated in 1911. The early 1930s saw a growth boom in Las Vegas. Nevada legalized casino gambling, officially renaming it gaming. They also lowered the divorce residency requirement to 6 weeks, which made it the lowest in the country at the time. Finally, the beginning of construction on the Hoover Dam brought in workers and families from all over the country.

    Las Vegas is the largest city in Nevada with a population of 603,000 as of 2016. The metropolitan area around Las Vegas including the incorporated cities of North Las Vegas and Henderson is home to over 2,025,000 people. While the Paiute and the Anasazi called the area home since 2,000 years ago, the area was settled again in the early 19 hundreds when members of the Latter Day Saints Church built a fort as a stop between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. Las Vegas was officially incorporated in 1911.

    Las Vegas is the 4th most popular travel destination in the United States behind New York, Chicago, and Charleston. Recently the Las Vegas airport has increased their direct flights overseas to accommodate a boom in foreign tourism.

    The economy is heavily based on the tourism, gaming, and convention industries which bring in around 40 million visitors every year. All of these people breathe life into the vibrant restaurant, retail, and hospitality industries. Any time of day, any day of the year, there are crowds of people walking between casinos in search of food and entertainment.

    Las Vegas is part of the Clark County School District, which also includes Henderson, North Las Vegas, and unincorporated areas around the city. With 288 elementary schools, 138 middle schools, and 92 high schools, there are lots of options for everything from public schools to STEM-focused charters.
