Uncontested divorce in Nevada

Nevada uncontested or ‘summary divorce’ means that it's no need to go to court and attend the numerous trial hearings if the spouses can reach an agreement.
The divorce papers just must be submitted to the court and the judge signs them if they are sufficient and an agreement between the spouses is fair.
Briefly, the essence of the uncontested divorce is that the spouses have already agreed on all the key points of marriage.

In order to be able to get a summary divorce in the state of Nevada, the following points must be met:

  • Spouses did not live together and did not cohabit for at least 1 year or they are incompatible and this are the grounds for divorce.
  • Spouses do not have general minor children, and the wife is not pregnant at the time of filing the petition to the court. Alternatively, if the spouses have common minor children, but the couple has a written agreement on how the guardianship and hours of the child's visit should be distributed, as well as the amount of his or her financial support.
  • Spouses have no common property. Or if there is a property that was acquired in the marriage, the spouses have made a written agreement on how it will be divided after the divorce.
  • Both spouses refuse to apply for alimony or if support is needed, then there is a written agreement on the amount and payment period.
  • Both spouses refuse after the divorce to fool the judge's decision, as there is a written agreement.
  • Both spouses want the court to introduce the final decree on the dissolution of marriage.

If the spouses meet all the criteria for an uncontested divorce and fill out the divorce form documents correctly, then the judge may grant a divorce within 20 days but anyway not earlier.
