Courts Are Still Opened
We are saddened by what is happening with COVID19. Our hearts go out to all families affected by it. We hope things return to normal as soon as possible. Meanwhile, contrary to rumors, COURTS ARE OPENED FOR BUSINESS, but the courthouse is closed. Attorneys file cases through a platform set up for that purpose, and they attend hearings via phone or streaming. It's business as usual for us.
We do case intake online. There is no need for you to travel to our office for any reason, though you do have that option.
You can even get notarized online by an e-notary if coming to our office to get notarized is an issue for you. We are taking precautions. Our staff wears masks and gloves when meeting with clients. We have disposable pens for clients' use. Our business center requires everyone who enters to wear a mask.
This means we can file your case and your judge can decide on it without you ever leaving home. Call us for details: 702-680-1780.
Las Vegas Divorce Lawyer
25+ years of Experience. Reliable. Proven Results. Guarantee. Payment Plan.
You can obtain a divorce in Las Vegas quickly if the parties are already residents of Nevada and if both parties agree to sign the divorce forms. This allows for a joint petition divorce filing which makes it through the Family Court system court faster. If your spouse won’t sign the divorce papers, but also does NOT contest the divorce, you will still obtain your divorce relatively quickly, though not as fast as if you both sign the divorce documents.
Appreciated your patience
Hi Good Day, I would like to thank you for doing all your best to make things possible to get my divorce done,and I really appreciate your patience every time I call and check the status of it. One of your Law secretary was really accommodating and helpful all throughout until this day of finalizing the documents. I’m so excited and happy. Again Thank you so much and Have a nice Day. I will assure you I will recommend your office to all my friends and relatives.

Professional, thoughtful, timely
Discount Las Vegas Lawyer handled my case in a timely, professional, and maybe most importantly, thoughtful manner. Being able to consult with an attorney for the same price I would have had to pay for a paralegal was a great relief and they took the necessary time to make sure everything was prefect before submitting my paperwork at court. After submission,my case was granted in 4 days! Thank you!

What Is a Complaint for Divorce?
In the case of a one-signature divorce, one party acts as Plaintiff (the person who signs the Complaint for Divorce), and serves the other party (we arrange a process server for you) who becomes the Defendant.
In some cases, the Defendant ignores receipt of the Divorce Complaint and does nothing, in which case the divorce continues as an uncontested divorce matter. If this occurs, a Default is filed with the court on Day 22 after the date of personal service (through a process server) or after the last date of the publication of the Summons if the Defendant could not be found by the process server.
Once the Default is granted, the Decree of Divorce is submitted for the judge’s signature. Once the judge signs the Decree of Divorce, and the clerk files it, your Las Vegas divorce becomes final.
If your divorce develops as above, it is still considered an uncontested Nevada divorce.
If the Defendant files an Answer denying the allegations in the Complaint for Divorce, the divorce is now considered contested. In this case, once a divorce becomes contested, the court sets a mandatory case management conference (mediation). You may attend case conference on your own and plead your own case. However, if your case has gotten to this point and you don’t have an attorney, we highly recommend that you retain a competent and experienced lawyer, one who practices family law in Las Vegas, in order to protect your rights. Mr. Smith is available to continue as your attorney of record on your contested Las Vegas divorce.
When you cannot locate your spouse:
If you cannot locate your spouse, you can obtain a divorce in Las Vegas through a default process. This involves attempted service, by a process server, on your spouse at the last-known address, followed by publication of the Summons in a newspaper if the process server could not find your spouse and therefore could not serve the Divorce Complaint and Summons to your spouse.
Once the Defendant (your spouse) has been properly served either in person or by publication, a Default may be entered into on Day 22 after the date of service or last date of publication. Once the Default is granted, your Decree of Divorce is submitted to the judge for a signature. Once the Decree is signed by the judge and filed by the court clerk, your Nevada divorce (Las Vegas divorce) is final.
A one signature divorce takes longer to complete than a joint petition divorce.
Though it takes longer without the other party’s signature, we move as quickly as possible to get the divorce granted within the constraints of court requirements and process service requirements.

We have a system to efficiently get your case through the court process with minimal requirements placed upon you.
You simply need to do the following:
• Provide us with the initial information needed to create your divorce documents
• Sign them at our office in front of our notary
• Provide us with the information we need to have your spouse served with the divorce documents
