What rights does one have if they have separated before divorce?

Some couples in Nevada in a troubled marriage may decide to undergo a separation period before deciding whether or not to divorce. For example, they may simply need some space and time to evaluate their marriage to determine if it can be saved before throwing in the towel. That being said, it is important for couples who have separated to understand how the separation will affect their rights.

Can a custodial parent move away with their child?

Sometimes, after a child's parents have divorced and the dust has settled, months or even years later the child's custodial parent may wish to move with the child. Perhaps they got an offer for their "dream job" in another city or state. Or, maybe they want live closer to family. Or, maybe they feel they could offer their child a better life in a different city or state. Really, there are many reasons why a custodial parent in Nevada would wish to relocate with their child.

Parents in Nevada have rights if wrongfully denied visitation

When parents in Nevada divorce, unfortunately they do not always walk away from the split on amicable terms. Sometimes they part with resentment, anger and a feeling like the end result is not fair. This may especially be true when it comes to child custody. The goal of any child custody arrangements should, to the extent that is appropriate, allow each parent to spend enough time with the child so they can maintain a meaningful relationship with the child. However, sometimes the custodial parent will deny the noncustodial parent the noncustodial parent's lawful parenting time. When that happens, the noncustodial parent has rights.

New tax act could spell big changes to alimony if enacted

For those in Nevada who follow politics, tax reform is a hot button issue right now. In fact, a recent act known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has received considerable attention on both sides of the aisle, some positive, some negative. Of course, not everyone follows politics. However, they may want to stop and take note of this act, especially if they pay or receive alimony, also known as spousal support.

Is it always worth it to fight for the family home in a divorce?

People in Nevada often have emotional ties to the family home, which can make it one of the most sought-after pieces of property should a couple divorce. Each side may have very personal reasons for wanting to keep the family home. However, there are important financial considerations that accompany home ownership that should be considered before deciding whether to fight for such a large asset.

What are the steps in the adoption process in Nevada?

All children in Nevada deserve to have loving parents who provide them with safe and supportive homes in which to grow and thrive. Sometimes prospective parents in Nevada choose to adopt a child. Adoption is a wonderful way to grow a family, but there are steps that need to be taken to legally adopt a child.

Dealing with the emotional stress of divorce

The decision to divorce is usually not an easy one. It is also one that often comes with a lot of stress. When a couple in Nevada decides to marry, they usually do so with the intent that their union will last forever. Therefore, the decision to divorce -- even if divorce is in both party's best interests -- can be a painful one. Is there anything a person going through a divorce can do to make the process less painful and exhausting?

Do grandparents have rights in Nevada?

When a couple decides to get a divorce, it often affects more than just the two of them. Many times children are a part of a marriage and grandparents are also beloved family members. Nevada grandparents may wonder if they will have any rights to visit their grandchildren once the divorce is finalized.

Nevada expands parentage rights

Recognizing the changing nature of families, Nevada amended its family law relating to parental rights to make it gender neutral. Beginning July 1, the law will no longer utilize the term acknowledgment of paternity and instead refer to acknowledgment of parentage, thereby granting equal rights to married couples of children conceived during marriage from donor sperm or artificial insemination.
