This is the first post in a series which will discuss issues commonly faced by fathers during Las Vegas divorce cases. I feel it is necessary to write on this topic due to the fact that, while dads understandably prioritize their children above all else, there are issues they must deal with during a divorce. Such matters can have a serious impact on one’s future finances and, as a result, impact a dad’s ability to raise their child. My goal with this series is to provide information which will help one to better understand his situation and to also assist with making informed decisions when selecting a divorce attorney. If you need assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I will address multiple subjects over my coming articles. Issues which I will analyze include:
- Immediate issues one must face in a divorce (such as who will live in the marital residence)
- Spousal support in Nevada
- How Nevada handles community property issues
These are important topics for a dad to understand. First, when one files for divorce the Clark County Family Court will often issue preliminary rulings which impact the situation. These rulings may dictate where one will live, when they will see their child, and what their immediate financial obligations will be. Second, many may find out that they will be required to pay spousal support or, in fact, that they may receive alimony. Finally, many do not realize the complexity of Nevada’s community property laws. Understanding such issues will help you to be better prepared for the future.
One point I cannot stress enough is that you should contact an attorney as soon as possible if you are facing a divorce. The sooner you retain counsel then the sooner you can get a handle on the situation and make sure that things are being dealt with. You will also gain a better understanding of what to expect as the case moves forward. As a Las Vegas fathers’ rights lawyer I deal with many cases which involve children.
