Property Division in Nevada

Protecting Your Assets During the Divorce Process

Property divisionIn a divorce, the courts need to settle all the material affairs from the marriage and one of the most important matters the court must handle is dividing up the property. Nevada courts will do the best they can to allocate the property to each spouse equally; however, no one should go to court without having representation. If you are in the middle of divorce proceedings, you need to retain a Las Vegas divorce attorney to ensure you and your assets are protected.

How does property get divided?

Nevada is a community property state which means that all income earned and the property acquired by either spouse during the marriage is community property belonging to both spouses and must be split equally or equitably in a divorce. All property acquired by the couple prior to the marriage is presumed to be separate property.

Non-marital or separate property includes:

  • Property gained by either spouse before the marriage
  • Property acquired after the marriage as a gift, bequest, devise, or descent
  • Awards for damages due to personal injury

    After deciding which property may be distributed, the judge will decide how to best divide the assets.

    Common property is allocated the following way:

    • Cash is divided equally between the spouses
    • Retirement plans are divided according to the amount accrued during the marriage
    • Vehicles are divided based on their values as determined by the court and may be sold
    • Insurance is divided according to the portion paid for or acquired during the marriage
