Are There Alternatives to Divorce?
Know Your Options Before You File for Divorce in Vegas
When a marriage becomes extremely difficult or falls apart, you may be worried that divorce is your only option. For some couples, divorce is certainly the best option for them to find peace and begin new lives separate from one another. Divorce is not the only option for handling a difficult or broken marriage, though, and may not be the best option for you.

Our family of Las Vegas divorce attorneys will examine your unique situation to help you determine whether to pursue legal separation instead of divorce, or even if you should seek counseling before deciding to go your separate ways. Our goal is to help you make the right decision for you.
Legal Separation in Las Vegas, Nevada
Many couples who do not choose divorce decide on legal separation, instead. While divorce breaks all legal ties and dissolves a marriage contract completely, legal separation keeps the marriage contract intact while still allowing the two parties to live completely unattached from one another. Legally separated spouses have separate residences, separate financial accounts, and separate lives; however, they still benefit from the healthcare, pension, retirement, and tax benefits of marriage. Divorce would eliminate all of these benefits.
