Collaborative Divorce in Nevada
Las Vegas Divorce Attorneys
Collaborative divorce is an alternative method of resolving conflict in
which spouses come to an agreement mediated by an attorney. Collaborative
divorce lets you and your spouse agree to terms regarding custody, child
support, property division, and other issues outside of court. If you
would like to learn more about collaborative divorce, call our
Las Vegas divorce lawyer.
How a Collaborative Divorce Works
When divorce cases end up in court, the focus is usually on disagreements,
retaliation, and distrust. Collaborative divorce is an entirely voluntary
process that differs from mediation in that issues are worked through
and settled in confidential negotiations between you, your spouse, and
your respective attorneys. The presence of legal representation often
allows for a more comfortable setting in which to discuss the important
issues involved in a divorce.
For a collaborative divorce to be recognized by the state of Nevada, the
following must be involved:
- A written contract must be signed by the parties and their attorneys at
the start of the case
- Individual meetings must follow where both spouses and their attorneys
negotiate the issues
- Once all issues are resolved, one of the spouse's lawyers will file
- This legal document is then submitted to the court as an uncontested divorce
