Understanding Property Division In Nevada

Nevada is a community property state. This means that any property or debt acquired during your marriage is considered that of both parties in the marriage. There are usually exceptions. At times these exceptions make marital property a complicated issue. Hiring a divorce attorney with extensive experience in Nevada community property laws can make the difference in your case. Your financial future may hinge on the division of assets and debt, and you should not trust your future to an inexperienced lawyer.  Call today for further information.

Addressing The Complex Issues In Property Divisions

At Standish Law Group, we help clients see the big picture when it comes to property division. As your legal counsel we will advise on property, business relations, investments, luxury items, assets, debts, liabilities, tax implications, and more.

Nevada is a community property state. In most cases, each spouse owns half of the assets and debts acquired during the marriage. In a divorce courts distribute these assets and debts equally between with the spouses. Community property may be divided unequally upon divorce if the spouses entered a Nevada prenuptial agreement or a marital dissolution settlement agreement.
