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 the agreement
  • This legal document is then submitted to the court as an uncontested divorce

How can a divorce lawyer help?

A lot depends on the representation you bring to a collaborative process since no judge will be ruling on your case. Having a skilled divorce attorney is critical to ensure that your rights are protected. You need an attorney who knows all the various aspects of divorce and is committed to collaborative law, negotiation, and mediation.
