Courts Are Still Opened 

We are saddened by what is happening with the coronavirus. 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. The only change is that, for the moment, it is mandatory for attorneys to attend hearings via phone or streaming

We do case intake online. There is no need for you to travel t our office for any reason.

Today, March 16, 2020, we are working on a solution for our clients to get notarized online rather than having to travel to our office or other notary.

This means we can file your case and your judge will decide on it without you ever leaving home.  Call us for details: 702-420-7052.

EXCELLENT JOB!
I met Mr. Smith several years ago. Not only is he a great attorney, but now a good friend. I initially had him help me with family law matters and corporate matters and he always did an excellent job. One of the very few good attorneys left out there.

Knowledgeable Staff
The staff at Discount Las Vegas Lawyer is very knowledgeable and was very helpful in guiding me through the divorce process. I was very impressed with the quick responses to my questions and the speed in which my divorce was finalized. Hopefully, I will not need this service again, but if I do I would use this attorney.

COMPLAINT FOR DIVORCE IN NEVADA


 

A one-signature divorce in Nevada is filed in the form of a Complaint for Divorce. One party acts as Plaintiff and the other party is known as the Defendant.

Basic court process for obtaining an uncontested divorce without the signature of the other party goes as follows:

  • The complaint for divorce is filed with the court and a Summons issued
  • Once the complaint is filed, the court requires that the Defendant  be served with the Complaint for Divorce as well as the Summons.
  • From the date of service, the Defendant has 21 calendar days to file an Answer and Counter Claim with the court.
  • If the Defendant does not respond at all, a Default is submitted with the court.
  • The court clerk will file the Default if all of the necessary steps have been taken to notify the Defendant of the divorce.
  • Once the Default is granted, the Decree of Divorce goes to the judge for consideration.
  • Once the judge signs the decree, and the clerk files it, your divorce becomes final.

If the Defendant files an Answer and Counterclaim, you now have a contested divorce. If this occurs, it becomes very important to retain a competent and experienced lawyer who practices Nevada family law in order to protect your rights.

 

Have you been unable to locate your spouse and want to file a divorce in Nevada anyway?
If you cannot locate your spouse, you may still obtain a divorce through a default process whereby the Defendant (your spouse) is served by publication. This involves attempted service on your spouse by a process server, at your spouse’s last-known address, followed by publication of the Summons in a newspaper. Once Publication (which goes on for five weeks) and a 21 calendar day wait after the last date of publication has ended, we can proceed by Default.

 

If I can’t find my spouse and I file a one-signature divorce, does this mean my divorce is contested?

  • Though a defendant does not sign the divorce papers along with the Plaintiff, it does not  mean that the Nevada divorce is contested.
  • If a Defendant does nothing at all, meaning does not file an Answer and Counter Claim after the Nevada divorce is filed, the Nevada divorce is still considered to be uncontested.
  • A Nevada divorce becomes contested ONLY when the defendant files an Answer and Counter Claim
