Areas of Practice

DIVORCE

We’re here to support and guide you in making smart, informed decisions with divorce-related matters so that you can move forward with clarity and confidence.

Contested Divorce

If you and your spouse are unable to agree to the terms of your divorce then you’ll need to move forward with a contested divorce.

Uncontested Divorce

We offer a special flat-fee price for couples who have come to a mutual agreement regarding the terms of their divorce.

Legal Separation

A legal separation generally serves as a trial run for divorce. You remain technically married but move forward as a divorced couple would.

Annulments

An annulment essentially erases the marriage as if it never happened, and must meet certain criteria in the state of Nevada.

Collaborative Divorce

For couples who want to work together with their respective attorneys to come up with a divorce agreement, a collaborative divorce serves as a less expensive and less time-consuming route.

Divorce Mediation

A mediator is a neutral third party that works with both spouses to reach a decision that is best for everyone involved.

Post-Divorce Issues

The process you follow post-divorce will set you up for how you handle the rest of your life.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

At the simplest level, the difference between the two is when they are created.

CHILD CUSTODY / SUPPORT

Navigating child custody/support and the laws around it can get tricky. We will work with you, the court and your partner’s attorney towards an outcome that is in the best interest of the child.

Grandparent Visitation

Nevada grandparents have the legal right to request court-ordered visitation with their grandchildren if they can prove it is in the best interest of the child(ren).

Petitions to Establish Child Custody (For Unmarried Parties)

Child custody between unmarried parties can require additional steps including establishing parentage.

Child Support

In Nevada, child support aims to pay for the basic care and medical costs of children and is calculated based on each parent’s gross monthly income.

Adoption

Adopting a child is an important decision for you and your family. While the prospect of adding a new family member to your life is exciting and joyful, you should also be aware of the legal requirements and complications that can occur during this critical process.

Legal Hurdles of Adoption

The process of adoption can be complicated, involving many regulations that you must follow. A family lawyer who specializes in adoption will look at your situation and get to know you well.

Family Law Appeal

Few court cases are as important or life-changing as family court situations. These cases not only affect your income but time with your kids, how your marriage is dissolved and other important matters.
