How do I protect my rights?

Nevada Family Law Firm

Las Vegas Family Law & Domestic Partnership Attorneys

At the Las Vegas-based family law firm of Law Practice, Ltd., we focus on the following areas of practice:

Divorce - Just as you should not give up your rights in a contested divorce, you should not leave paperwork to chance in an uncontested divorce. Far too much is at stake when you are dealing with a complex marital dissolution that involves a spouse or spouses with high net worth.

Child custody - At Law Practice, Ltd., we focus on the best interests of the child in creating and negotiating parenting agreements. Using the Family Mediation Center is required in Nevada to avoid children being placed in the middle of a dispute. We understand the emotional fallout of a bitter battle, including the possible loss of time with children or the termination of parental rights.

Call us at 702-517-5705 or toll free at 888-351-7870.

Child support - Strict calculations govern child support amounts. However, those formulas cannot prevent one spouse from hiding income or a husband or wife from exaggerating expenses. Issues can become highly contested when a mother or father is seeking a modification based on a change of circumstances, such as desiring to relocate outside of the state of Nevada with the children.

Spousal support/alimony - Unlike child support, alimony does not have a statute mandating financial help for one spouse. Usually, a judge makes the decision. Leave nothing to chance. You need an experienced divorce lawyer to help negotiate an agreement which is satisfactory for both sides.

Division of assets/debts - You are entitled to your fair share of the assets following the end of your marriage. With Nevada being a community property state, you should not give up your rights to an equitable division of assets and debts, both individual and marital.

Domestic partnerships/coparenting agreements/Reproductive Technology Rights - With a new law allowing registration for domestic partners, we can help with the application process. Please know that the new law does not cover custody-related matters. Custody matters and parental rights are addressed in a coparenting agreement. Our attorney's are experienced in drafting co-parenting agreements for traditional and non-traditional families. Additionally, with advances in reproductive technology, it is essential that you contact us before utilizing such medical procedures in order to establish your parental and custodial rights. We strongly recommend that clients contact us first before making such life-altering decisions.

Paternity issues - Dad wants time with his child. Mom wants financial support to care for her child. Paternity matters are challenging when a couple is not married. However, we have the experience and compassion to get you through a difficult process.

In addition, we handle these matters, as well:

  • Annulments
  • Pre-Nuptial/Post-Nuptial Agreements
  • Name Change
  • Guardianships
  • Legal Separation
