When it comes right down to it, a divorce is a legal matter. Your marriage may have actually ended a while ago, but you just did not get around to taking care of the legalities of it. If you are already living apart, it can make things a bit easier, but there are still legal issues you are going to want to talk over with a Reno Nevada divorce lawyer. It all starts with filing for the divorce through the courts.
If you and your soon to be ex-spouse own any property together, it needs to be determined who is responsible for it, who has the rights to it and how much needs to be paid to the other partner. Usually this will include any real estate, vehicles or other property that was bought, or given, during the course of the marriage that may be worth a good amount of money. Your lawyer is going to ask for a complete financial accounting from you both. Your own personal belongings will not be included, and anything you had before the marriage will usually stay with you.
ChildrenIf you and your spouse have any children together, there is going to be issues regarding custody, visitation and support. Our Reno Nevada divorce lawyers understand the laws associated with these areas and will be able to discuss what is necessary for them. Unless there is a good reason, you will most likely be granted joint custody of any minor children. If the time of physical custody is equally split, there may not be any support awarded. However, if you had always been supported by your spouse, and now need to find a way to provide for the children when they are with you, you will receive the needed support money.
