Why hire a property division attorney?
Nevada is a community property state when it comes to property division
in a divorce or separation. If spouses cannot agree upon the division
of assets and liabilities, the court will rule upon the matter by equally
dividing these. However, there are certain situations where the court
may find it necessary to unequally divide property or debt based upon
substantially compelling reasons.
Although equal property division laws typically apply in a Las Vegas divorce,
it will be necessary to address what property should be considered "separate"
and what property should be considered "marital property." Particularly
in high asset cases, this can be a complex issue. A family law attorney
can assist you in addressing these and any other issues related to your
divorce by working with professionals in accounting, business valuation,
real estate appraisal, and related fields to properly determine the value
of property and assets, as well as the proper designation of this property.
