How to File

An Uncontested Divorce

If you and your spouse can agree to the terms of divorce you can file an “uncontested divorce”. An uncontested divorce is a quickest and least expensive way to get a divorce. We call it a Simple Divorce.

 

An uncontested divorce is where you and your spouse agree to the terms of the divorce. If you agree on child custody, child support, and how to divide the assets a few documents are filed with the court. The judge reviews the documents, and the divorce is finalized. No court hearings are needed with a Simple Divorce. There are only three steps to a Simple Divorce.

Draft and

SIGN DOCUMENT

The first step is to write out the terms of the divorce you have agreed to. By terms, we mean who keeps the home, who takes which vehicle, who takes which bank account, what days you have the children, how much child support, etc.
Use our Uncontested Divorce Worksheet to write out these terms.

DOCUMENT

We use the worksheet to draft and file your court documents. This opens your uncontested divorce with the court. We then submit the documents to the judge for a final review.

Submit Document For

JUDGE APPROVAL

The judge reviews the documents and if no changes are needed, signs and approves the divorce. We email you copies of divorce documents and your divorce is final.

The Mediated service is when you need an attorney to help mediate or negotiate the terms of the divorce and file all the documents. Both services are fixed fees, not an hourly fee.

COMPARED TO A PARALEGAL

Right Lawyers is not a paralegal. We are “local” licensed divorce attorneys. Paralegals are not licensed, attorneys. It is against the law for them to provide you legal advice. And if they do, their advice may be wrong. More importantly, paralegals are not required to carry insurance when they are wrong.

 

Right Lawyers is not an online form generator. Be careful using an online service. Online programs only print forms for you. You still need to file the documents with the court yourself. You still need to submit the documents to the judge. You still need to pay the filing fees.

 

Right Lawyers is a better option for an uncontested divorce. We handle drafting and filing all the documents. We can provide legal advice. And our fixed fees are not much more than a paralegal or an online service

100% GUARANTEE

THE DOCUMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED

BY THE COURTS OR YOUR MONEY BACK.

How Do I Start an

UNCONTESTED DIVORCE?

The best way to get started is to complete our Uncontested Divorce Worksheet. Review the worksheet with your spouse. Reviewing the worksheet together is a way of testing the waters. You will learn whether you both agree on the terms of the divorce or not. If you both agree, you can file an uncontested divorce. If you don’t agree, at least now you know the issues that need to be discussed with an attorney.

    Rock was recommended to me by a friend so I reached out to him and I'm so grateful for the recommendation! I wanted to get through my divorce as quickly as possible and his team helped make that happen. They were quick to respond to every email and question I had, they were helpful in sharing information and questions I had about what to ask for in my divorce, they made the entire process go as smoothly and as quickly as possible. I knew up front what the fees were and it felt like they had my best interest at heart. I would absolutely recommend the Right Divorce Lawyers to anyone looking for support through their divorce.

    I just went through a divorce after 15 years of marriage. The whole process seemed pretty stressful and frankly I was not mentally prepared to deal with it. After briefly talking with Meredith, and working with Danielle, the whole process became quite effortless. I highly recommend RIGHT Lawyers if you are suddenly faced with an unfortunate (or fortunate?) divorce.

    Recently needed to find an attorney and I called up RIGHT Lawyers. I was fortunate enough to talk to Mr. Rocheleau about my situation and he was able to help me through it and file all the legal matters that pertained to my situation. Given how severe my case felt to me, Mr. Rocheleau and his paralegal, Angelica, were quick, responsive, and able to file all of the paperwork as quickly as possible. This was honestly the best experience I ever had with an attorney. I would highly recommend Mr. Rocheleau for anyone who goes through a divorce.

    While my case did not go how we had both hoped, I still appreciate everything that Brittney did to help me fight for my children. I am autistic and part of the LGBT+ community, so it is important to me to have someone represent me that is a strong ally, concise, and thorough in communication. I never once felt like she didn't have my best interests at heart. She was empathetic. She explained everything she could as well as she could. This is the second time we had used her (first time did go our way). I would use her again in the future. Brittney is a great attorney.

    The folks at RIGHT Lawyers handled by divorce so quickly, thoroughly, and inexpensively, it's hard to believe that it actually happened. The team, including Rock and Adriana, were extremely courteous, and followed through on every request and communication I had. And, for anyone who's gone through a divorce knows - waiting for a response from your attorney, while your losing sleep (and your mind) is painful in its own right. No pain here!

    I needed to speak with an attorney quickly. I left a message at 6:30 a.m., and Rock called back before 8:00 a.m. He gave me sound, professional advice, and offered further communication as needed. He didn't try to eat up billable time or gouge me either.

    I first reached out to RIGHT Lawyers to help me with my divorce. Divorce is something you never plan for, but I am glad I trusted one of the toughest moments of my life with one of the most gracious lawyers they have. Mr. Rock Rocheleau was my lawyer. He helped me every step of the way. Once my divorce was finalized I had some hiccups regarding my custody with my kids. That is where RIGHT Lawyers helped me again. Mr. Rock and another custody lawyer, Brittany, took the time to answer all my questions and emails. Never made me feel like a random person. I felt like I asking my wise Uncle and Aunt some life questions. I trusted my life and my kids lives in their hands and I will forever be grateful.

    I couldn’t be happier with this firm! Meredith was a life saver after a three year battle, she was attentive, responded quickly, communicated, and really listened to my needs. She was confident and in return eased any anxiety I had been having. I can’t believe I didn’t hire her from day one. I hope I never have to hire her again but if I do, there is no question that she would be my go to. Thank you Meredith and Right Lawyers for being there during the most difficult time in my life. I highly recommend

    To sum it up, Brittney saved my whole world. She’s amazing and she never missed a beat. She has always been very honest with me about everything and never sugar coated anything. She worked so hard for my son and I, and I always felt that she was 100% in my corner. It was a long road, and while I was unsure what the outcome would be, I was confident in her and I knew she did absolutely everything she could for me. Amber was also amazing. Amber would take my calls and empathize with me when I was upset, worried or just needed to vent. In the end, we got the outcome that we needed, and I will always be forever grateful for all of their hard work. Though I’m glad this part of my journey is over, I’m honestly sad I won’t get to have such frequent contact with them anymore! They were there with me through the biggest fight of my life, and they’ll always feel like family to me.

    Brittney & Amber are so awesome thanks to these super awesome lady’s my life is back to normal. They always picked up my calls when I needed to communicate with them or seek professional advice they always reached out to me throughout the whole process was professional & neat at all times. Brittney revived a dead case! With the same judge that I appeared to prior with a complete different lawyer from another law firm which I ending up firing lost a lot of money. Brittney took the same evidence & my case with with less then 25 days to appear in front of the same judge Brittney changed the whole dynamic of the case without even breaking a sweat!Best legal advice I can give to anyone reading this post.1. You get what you pay for.2. Never lie to your lawyer be honest.3. Go with a attorney that is reputable & well respected by judges believe me judges lean on this because they know the Right Lawyers & there staff are not a joke. Trust me I fired my first attorney for malpractice & lost a lot of money from a complete different law firm.4. Understand if you don’t communicate effectively or ask they don’t tell I did a lot of research & homework asked questions to my attorneys in advance for what if kind of situation scenarios just incase. Just like Brittney told me we are a team you need to be as dedicated as I am. You as a client need to understand your attorney only knows as much as you give them the more evidence you provide with the narrative to correspond with that & accurate dates helps these ladies do there job.5. Brittney & Amber never were annoyed or stressed when I called & I called a lot for information seeking legal advice or to report they were very professional & always had a response.6. Best lawyer in town would use again & recommend to anyone who needs one.7. Brittney & Amber & Right Lawyers genuinely love what they do understand it’s a business but it’s rare when you find a business that actually cares about Integrity & is ethical!!!! The proof is in the pudding read their reviews!

I can not express how difficult it is to go through such an emotional ordeal and Brittany made it so much easier. She explained the process and went through the paperwork in detail to make it much more comforting. Would definitely recommend using this firm to make the transition easier.

    I was going through a rough divorce trying to do it on my own. After about a year or so of battling on my own I decided to get a lawyer. My boss at the time referred me to Right Lawyers and I had the pleasure of meeting with Brittany, she was wonderful and straight forward. She tells like it is and doesn't sugar coat. She helped me fight to finish my divorce and walk away with results I was happy with. I highly recommend them to everyone that asks me who I use. If I ever need a divorce or custody lawyer in the future ill definitely be choosing this firm again.

I would highly recommend them to anyone going through the same thing.

    RIGHT lawyers was definitely the right choice! Sonya Toma and her team definitely made me feel like a priority in such a complicated situation in my life. They were always available whenever I needed to talk to them about any questions/concerns or updates about my case. Sonya and Rock would respond to my emails and calls right away at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE, even late in the evening after normal business hours. They had the patience, courteousness, and compassion to take care of my needs during such a difficult and emotional time in my life. I am grateful for their guidance and assistance throughout the divorce process, especially for settling my case within a few months. I would recommend Sonya and the Right lawyers any day!

    I would like to take the time to highly recommend the services of Philip Spradling and RIGHT Lawyers. I hired Philip back in November when my ex-wife served me with divorce papers. There is no doubt that this was by far the scariest time of my entire life and I was very anxious at first due to how aggressive my ex and her lawyer were; they wanted to essentially take my daughter away from me (even though my ex repeatedly placed her friends and new boyfriend ahead of her family) and try to demand an insane amount of alimony and child support. My ex had no interest in trying to settle or work this out amicably. They came out in full attack mode and came out swinging.Luckily, Philip and RIGHT Lawyers came to the rescue. From the moment I called them for the first time I was treated with nothing but care and respect. I spoke with Rock and he took a very large chunk of his day to talk to me and convinced me to speak with Philip about my upcoming litigation. Philip took the time to listen to everything I had to say and was very upfront about the cost of the litigation and how we were going to respond to my ex-wife’s aggressive complaint. Philip countered with a counter-claim and I was blown away by how well-worded it was. After a month, we filed a motion for temporary orders and I was deeply impressed with how structured and effective his work was. Their opposition to our motion was a complete joke and they wound up settling right before the hearing, ending the divorce and the darkest period of my life. I credit this solely to Philip, Adriana (the wonderful paralegal at RIGHT Lawyers) and the rest of their team including Karen, Rock, Laura and everyone whose name I did not mention.I want to commend Philip for his incredible patience with me and always being willing to take my calls or answer my emails no matter what silly question I had or what drama I was dealing with. I LOVE the fixed cost system RIGHT Lawyers uses because you can feel free to communicate if there is an issue and once you pay them for the work, they will get it done for you and they will do a good job. All in all I wound up paying $10,500 to fend off my ex wife and her lawyer from their aggressive complaint and this was the result of the hard work Philip, Adriana and the rest of their team put in. Today, my daughter spends most of her days with me while my ex-wife is still trying to pay off her attorney’s fees and fight through bankruptcy.If I ever need legal counsel again, Philip is the first person I would call. His calm demeanor put me at ease and I would recommend his services any day of the week. We came out of that dispute victorious and with a very favorable result. Philip will always be down to earth and realistic about what to expect but will still keep an open mind and fight for his clients the best he can. I definitely highly recommend his services and the services of RIGHT Lawyers.--Nate V.

    Right Lawyers and Philip Spradling did an amazing job representing me in my prolonged and emotionally draining divorce and child custody case. If you are looking for an attorney who will represent you to the best of their capabilities and do everything possible to get the best outcome for you in your divorce/child custody case, Philip and Right Lawyers are the ones! Everyone was very helpful. From Clarisa in the front desk, to Adriana, one of their Paralegals, to Rock. Everyone was great. I got exactly the outcome I wanted and the support from a firm who knows what they are doing, was priceless.I strongly recommend them because having the right legal representation sets the right tone in ANY case. In my case, Philip remained very poised and his calm demeanor helped a lot, since I can be a hot head at times. You won't be disappointed, almost guarantee that.

    Right Lawyers did an amazing job! Super impressed with the level of service I received not only from their office staff but especially from my lawyer. I had the pleasure of working with Carlia Waite. She was empathetic, kind and patient with me and fierce council in the courtroom. She took the time to explain everything in detail, she was never misleading nor did she promise me or encouraged me to do things that weren't right for my case. She was always very punctual and answered all my emails or phone calls with a 72 hour, which blew my mind. The price of divorce is never cheap but they were very reasonable. When you get married you never plan for divorce. It's hard, it's sad and very stressful. Do your research and ask questions, and hopefully you'll end up in the hands of one of the best law firms in the Las Vegas area. Right Lawyers. I can't recommend them enough. Give them a call!

I never felt forgotten about or out of the loop due to my distance and never actually meeting my attorney.I was represented accurately and we WON!!! MY SON WON!!!This was 100% due to the deligence and dedication of my attorney !!!RIGHT Lawyers are honest, highly experienced, fair in pricing, and even offered an affordable payment plan !!I will be recommending them to everyone I know in Clark County in need of their services!!!!

    I called this law firm looking for a consultation regarding child custody. Left a voicemail mid afternoon, and Roc called me back shortly there after. He took the time to answer any questions I had and sent me an email regarding further more information. He was extremely kind, polite, and took the time to listen to me! I will definitely be calling him for any future court problems I may have, and highly suggest him to any local friends I have here in vegas!!!! Thank you Roc!!!

    First learned about Right Lawyers fall of 2014 when I was afraid I was going to have to fight to keep custody of my children. Had a good consultation with them, but when all was said and done my ex was more bark than bite. So, I knew who I needed to call when a similar situation came up last week. Rock took the time to listen to the issue and give me some sound advice about how to proceed. Thanks!

    I can truly say, Philip Spradling was part of the biggest day of my life, my families life and our future together. I've battled in court for over 3 years, as my ex was trying to take parental rights away. I had an attorney pass away and my case suddenly went south as her attorney took full advantage. RIGHT LAWYERS seriously came to rescue. 14 hearings and Trial. Philip took over on my case after it became a mess. He studied up and knew my case just as much as myself. Philip set us up for victory thinking far ahead of the opposing party. His calmness through trial alone kept me at ease. Thank you for everything

    Stacy Rocheleau worked on my Child Custody case when i retained RIGHT lawyers. Her service was excellent throughout the process even though i am based in the UK, Stacy was able to sort all the case work in the Clark County family courts extremely efficiently on my behalf keeping me updated throughout. I would recommend retaining both herself and RIGHT lawyers as i was happy with the set fee provided no hidden extras and a real understanding person on the other end of the phone/Email.

    Philip Spradling is my attorney at Right Lawyers and he is fantastic! I would recommend him to anyone going through a divorce. He is very knowledgeable, accessible and definitely calm, cool and collected. My divorce included the division of assets to include a business and it was pretty messy. Philip helped me to stay calm, and everything went just as he predicted. He definitely knows his stuff!

    Going through a divorce is tragic in itself not to mention the legal fees you encounter. The team at Rocheleau were absolutely phenomenal to say the least. Rock truly made all the difference in assisting me and making me feel at ease. Rock, Philip, Karen the entire team were extremely helpful, kind and considerate and looked out for me. Husband and I have since reconciled but God forbid, if I had to do it again, without a doubt, I would choose Right Lawyers.

    I retained Stacy as my legal counsel over a year ago upon recommendation from a friend. My case involved complex matters pertaining to international child custody issues. During the proceedings, I always felt that Stacy was well versed in the complexities of my case, and came to court ready to ensure my best argument was put forward. She listened to me, and approached the case in the manner consistent with how I wanted it handled. I felt very well represented and that she did an outstanding job as my attorney. Happily, my international custody case was settled in my favor. I would highly recommend Stacy to anyone looking for an attorney with a strong track record in child custody matters.

    I definately recommend Right Lawyers...staff are very friendly they gave the warm feeling. They don't make you feel like a business deal. Stacy make sure that everything is done fair and that you understand every legal term. I thought it was really nice that she explained every legal term so I could understand. If I had questions she took time to explain and if I still didn't understand she gave me examples which I liked.

    I attempted to represent myself in the first stage of my divorce which turned out to be a huge mistake. Get a lawyer, and when you do, retain one from RIGHT Lawyers. Court is combat, and you wouldn't go to war without a weapon. In my case, the Judge (a "sit in" for a judge who was voted out of office) listened to nothing I had to say. Mitchell (my attorney) became my voice. Thank you Mitch, for everything.

    You have a bunch of questions right now? Not sure about what to do, what the next step should be? Confused and outraged by the papers you were just served? Yeah, I was in your shoes once before. Nothing about your next steps are going to be easy but with the right choice in a lawyer, at least they can be explained and guided. That's exactly what I found with Right Lawyers. From the initial phone call the process of my divorce was explained step by step, and with every consultation the picture became more clear. I was met with a very helpful and professional staff, but most importantly my lawyer took the time to listen to me, and understand my feelings about the situation, and really made me feel like she had my best interests in mind. It was said to me on several occasions "I work for you, you tell me what it is you want." I was never rushed into a decision, and not once did I feel pressured or was asked to settle. My divorce was made on my terms, thanks to Right Lawyers. So if you are looking for a lawyer who will help make a little sense of it all, who will help you take these next steps, go with Right Lawyers.

When you are in need of a divorce attorney , look no further than Right Lawyers. Right Lawyers were very professional and kept me well informed every step of the way.

    After 2 bad experiences with other law firms I was referred to Peter James at Right Lawyers. Although Mr. James didnt start with my case he was able to step right in, continue and help me get a positive result. Because of him and Right Lawyers I am able to enjoy joint physical custody of my two beautiful daughters. They are reasonably priced and havent tried to nickel and dime me for every minute spent on my case. I fully recommend them to anyone who is going through a custody battle.

She has always shot my wife and I straight - telling me the pros/cons of any situation we faced. We have ALWAYS felt confident with our representation. Stacy is second to none!

I found Peter James to be very attentive and took all the time that I needed to fully understand the process and how he and his firm engages. His assistant Crystal was always there to assist me as many questions and concerns would come up through the process, and she always answered my questions in a timely manner. You can feel confident in choosing Mr. James as your attorney, as he knows his job and the entire staff is pleasant and helpful.

    "Rock" is the "go to" guy. He was the first impression and the reason why I even considered this firm. He made me feel like I was a person and not just a business transaction. He spoke to me on the phone for a good 10-20 mins to simply get some questions out of the way. I was impressed.When I came in to meet with the attorney, Rock was kind enough to show his face since I insisted to meet with him. And I made sure to let him know if it wasn't for him making me feel like he actually cared for my troubles over the phone, I probably would've made an appointment with the next firm.Over all, the firm is consistent with their quality services. I only wish my attorney was aggressively comparable with the defendant's attorney to get the result I would be highly satisfied with; because I ended up paying fees I was promised would be highly impossible. Nonetheless, satisfactory experience, it could have been worse.

    Stacy and her team are fantastic. I cannot say enough about their professionalism and empathy when working with their clients. I was in a tough position with family court in my custody battle when I switched firms and retained Right Lawyers. They methodically reviewed my case and aggressively went to battle for me. Stacy has a good relationship/rapport with the judges; they know her and trust her, this is apparent right away. Before my divorce, I had no idea that law firms were NOT the same. I recommend Right Lawyers to anyone needing help in the family courts.

    After wasting my time and money on two other attorneys I found Right Lawyers. Custody battles are rarely easy and ours was a mess. Mr. James and the entire staff were professional champions! Knowledgable, hard working and excellent listeners they worked with us to resolve one of the toughest times of our lives. No one goes into a relationship thinking they will get divorced or fighting over what's best for the children with someone you planned forever with. At Right Lawyers they understand that. Mr. James was our champion in and out of the courtroom. Thank you Right Lawyers!

    Rocheleau Law Group recently helped me with a Child Custody Case. While no case of this type is pleasant, the staff at Rocheleau was very compassionate and took the time to listen and to care. The entire group always had the time to speak with me, they answered my questions and emails promptly. Throughout the case my attorney was very accessible and very personable and most important very knowledgeable. The entire support staff which assists the Lawyers at this firm are terrific, they are professional, skilled and very friendly. The Rocheleau Law Group helped to settle my case and the results actually exceeded my expectations.
    I was refered to Right Lawyers by a friend, and I am very satisfied with the results. Everyone I have dealt with is professional, courteous, friendly, and prompt. They each took the time to answer all of my questions, in easy to understand language. I would use Right Lawyers again, and am vey happy with the results their firm has acheived for me.

    Divorce, especially when young children are involved, is usually an emotionally charged and complicated situation. I had several consultations prior to choosing Stacy Rocheleau as my representation. Stacy and staff were forthright and honest. They set the expectation for the good and the bad. Where other lawyers frightened me with the horrors of what could go wrong, Stacy was straightforward regarding what we were up against, but at the same time was reassuring by focusing on the things that were in our favor. I was encouraged to remain level headed and to not act upon emotion and reminded to always remember that my child's best interests were first and foremost. In my personal experience, I was most impressed by their philosophy of realistically choosing your battles. It showed integrity and a genuine consideration that at the end of the day money spent on the divorce is better spent on the child.

    FAQs

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    What is an uncontested divorce?

    An uncontested divorce also called a joint petition or joint divorce, means that both you and your spouse agree to all terms. If you and your spouse agree to the terms of your divorce you file a few documents with the court and the divorce is final.

     

    Get started by completing our Uncontested Divorce Worksheet with your spouse. If you both agree to the terms on the worksheet, Right Lawyers will draft the documents, file them with the court, and finalize your divorce. No court hearings are needed. It takes us about four days to draft the documents. It takes the court about three weeks to finalize the divorce.

    do i qualify for an uncontested divorce?

    The single most important factor to qualify for an uncontested divorce is that you and your spouse agree to all terms. That includes how to split your bank and credit card accounts, who retains ownership of any vehicles or property, whether one spouse must pay the other support, and how to handle child custody and visitation.

     

    Even if you and your spouse agree to all terms, however, there may be other factors that might rule out the option for an uncontested divorce. In Nevada, an uncontested divorce also requires that either you or your spouse have lived within the state for at least six weeks. In addition, if you or your spouse have children under 18 years old, those children must have lived within Nevada for at least six months prior to the divorce filing.

     

    Find out if you qualify for an uncontested Simple Divorce.

    How Long Does an Uncontested Divorce Take?

    From start to finish, an uncontested divorce can be final in as little as a few weeks.

     

    Once you and your spouse agree to all terms, the Simple Divorce documents can be finalized and signed by each of you, a process that can be completed over a few days. After you sign, the documents can then be filed with the court and reviewed by a judge. The court review process typically takes around three weeks. If there are no issues, the judge will sign, and the divorce is then final.

    What is the difference between a contested and an uncontested divorce?

    Divorce terms are decided in two ways. In a contested divorce, the spouses disagree about some aspect of the divorce, such as child custody or how to divide an asset. In a contested divorce a judge makes a final decision after hearing each side’s argument. In an uncontested divorce, both spouses agree on all terms, either at first or after some negotiation.

     

    Uncontested divorces are simpler, shorter, and less expensive, so it does benefit you to pursue this option first. To find out what you and your spouse agree on, review our Uncontested Divorce Worksheet.

    What divorce terms do my spouse and I need to agree on?

    In order to file an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must reach an agreement about all matters. Most arrangements between spouses require an agreement on five main categories:

     

    1. Child Custody: If you or your spouse has children, you both must agree to terms of custody. That will determine who is responsible for taking care of the children and who is allowed to make decisions on their behalf.
    2. Child Support: In addition to deciding custody of the children, you and your spouse must agree on whether either parent will pay child support.
    3. Community Property: You and your spouse need to agree about how to split your community property. Generally speaking, community property is assets acquired during the marriage.
    4. Community Debts: You and your spouse must agree on who will be responsible for any debts you acquired during the marriage. Debts such as mortgages, credit cards, and personal loans need to be discussed.
    5. Spousal Support: Also known as alimony, spousal support is a payment to a spouse after a divorce is final. You and your spouse must agree on whether alimony will be paid, to whom, and how much.
    6. If you and your spouse do not agree on all of these terms, you will not qualify for an uncontested divorce. In that case, you will file a contested divorce, and a judge will make the final decisions regarding any disputes.

    How do I start the divorce process?

    Once you make the decision to divorce, you need to know if your spouse will agree to both the separation and all terms. This will determine if the divorce will be contested or uncontested.

     

    In a contested divorce, both parties typically hire their own attorneys to file divorce papers. A process that can be both costly and lengthy. Contested divorces can take six months or longer. At the end of a contested divorce, a judge makes the final decisions regarding any disputes.

     

    In an uncontested divorce, both parties complete our Uncontested Divorce Worksheet. We draft all the documents and file all the documents with the court. The process takes between two and three weeks.

    What if my spouse and I have children?

    If you and your spouse have children, an uncontested divorce’s terms must include an agreement on child custody and child support.

     

    Child custody refers to the physical and legal care of the children. Who has the children on what days? Who is authorized to make arrangements on behalf of the children, such as education, medical, and travel decisions? In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must agree to the custody terms.

     

    Child support refers to financial payments you or your spouse may have to make to each other to pay for the care of the child. There are many factors taken into consideration when determining if child support should be paid, and how much. As long as you and your spouse agree, the terms can be written into an uncontested divorce. This Child Support Calculator can help you calculate the level of support based on Nevada law.

    What if my spouse does not want a divorce?

    By law, an uncontested divorce requires your spouse’s agreement and signature. If your spouse does not want a divorce, you will need to pursue other options such as a contested divorce or default divorce.

     

    Before you give up on an uncontested divorce, consider hiring an attorney to help you negotiate terms. Right Lawyers offers a Simple Divorce package that includes several hours with a licensed divorce attorney who can help you pursue the agreement and signature.

    When is an uncontested divorce not an option?

    If you and your spouse have tried everything and still cannot reach agreement on the divorce terms, an uncontested divorce is not an option. Instead, you will need to file a contested divorce and let a judge make the final decisions. In such a case, you do have the right to appeal the judge’s decision, something not possible in an uncontested divorce since you agreed to those decisions.

    What if I cannot locate my spouse or we do not communicate?

    You may be able to get an uncontested divorce even if you are unsure of where your spouse is living. If you cannot locate your spouse, there are service providers – called skip tracers – that will find them. Once you have an address, you can attempt to send divorce papers and hope your spouse agrees, signs, and returns the papers.

     

    If you know where your spouse lives, but do not communicate, a divorce attorney can serve as an intermediary. Your lawyer can negotiate terms on your behalf and seek the signature you need for the divorce.

     

    If you cannot get a signature from your spouse, there are other divorce options you can pursue. Schedule an appointment with one of our divorce attorneys.

    What is the best way to discuss this with my spouse?

    Be friendly, be polite, and be sympathetic to the situation. Ask your spouse if they would be interested in an “uncontested” divorce. I stress the uncontested part because you want to relay that you want to an easy divorce.

     

    Only three outcomes when discussing our uncontested worksheet with your spouse. No response. Fully agrees. Somewhat agrees. No response means you will need to file a contested divorce. Fully agrees means you can file an uncontested divorce (aka Simple Divorce). Somewhat agrees is a sign the divorce terms can be mediated.
