What do I need when filing for divorce?

Divorce laws in Nevada are fairly straightforward, if you adhere to state regulations and requirements. Whether your divorce is contested or collaborative, you or your spouse will be required to fill out a significant amount of paperwork. If you are the spouse responsible for completing the paperwork, you’ll need to “serve” the documents to the non-filing spouse. The non-filing spouse then has 20 days to respond to the documents you served.

When filing for divorce, you’ll need the following documents:

  • Decree of divorce
  • Affidavit
  • Certificate of Service or Waiver
  • Child Welfare and Identification Sheet (if there are minor children)
  • Summons (this is if you and your spouse cannot agree on the terms and issues of your divorce)
