No lawyer can promise that ending a marriage will be a stress-free experience, but the Miley Law Firm, P.C. in Las Vegas works diligently to establish fair divorce terms for Nevada clients. I have represented spouses for more than two decades and give each person I represent individualized advice on concerns including alimony, custody, property division and child support. Regardless of what precipitated your divorce, my fil help you start a new chapter in your life on a positive note.
To seek a divorce in Nevada, you must have resided in the state for at least six weeks. The process can be relatively quick if the parties are in agreement on pertinent terms. After learning about your circumstances and objectives, I can outline legal concepts such as:
For parents as well as childless clients, I deliver effective counsel based on your values and goals. This includes giving knowledgeable advice on the specific issues that affect high-net-worth and same-sex divorces.
Within the state, courts can order four types of alimony. Temporary spousal support might be awarded to assist a spouse while a divorce proceeding is pending. After the marriage is completely dissolved, one party might seek short-term payments so that they can deal with the transition to single life. Often, rehabilitative alimony is the preferred type of support because it gives someone who previously was a stay-at-home spouse the funds they need to maintain their standard of living while establishing or re-establishing the skills required to support themselves. Finally, what is referred to as permanent alimony (though it can be terminated upon remarriage or some other change in circumstances) is sometimes granted if the recipient ex-spouse cannot find a suitable job due to a disability, child care responsibility or extended period of time out of the workforce.
Divorcing spouses who share minor children have a special responsibility to their sons and daughters. To help make things easier for everyone, my firm seeks creative ways to resolve matters pertaining to legal authority, residence, visitation and child support. It’s often best to make every effort to establish legal and physical custody arrangements through consensus as the parties will have to abide by the terms that are set for many years to come. If necessary, I will represent you in court to help see that accurate information is presented to the judge and to advocate for a resolution that truly is in your child’s best interests.
