Every state has specific requirements where divorcing couples must establish residency before filing for divorce. Nevada is no exception.

The divorce may be filed in the county:


Where either of the spouses resides;


Where the spouses lived together;


Where the cause of the divorce occurred; or


Where the plaintiff lived for six weeks before filing for divorce.

One of the spouses must have legally lived in Nevada for at least six weeks prior to filing for divorce unless the cause for the divorce took place in the county in Nevada where the spouses lived at the time it occurred. [Nevada Revised Statutes; Chapter 125, Section 020]

There are many ways to prove that residency has been established. The easiest way is if one or both spouses have a valid and current Nevada driver’s license, ID card, or voter’s registration card issued at least six weeks before filing for divorce.

However, if this is not the case, it may be possible to establish residency by having someone who knows you or your spouse testify that you have lived in the state for at least six weeks. Additionally, it may be possible to use an Affidavit of Corroborating Witness form as proof you’ve lived in the state for a minimum of six weeks. As for establishing residency in the county, this varies from location to location.

I started my divorce on my own, spending loads of money on lawyer visits in the beginning. So I decided to google for other ways and using this site was so much more simple!

James V.

I had a very successful business at the time. So, making sure I had the right forms was very very important during my divorce. I was so surprised at how easy and smooth this process was.

After years of a tumultuous marriage, I finally decided that I needed to reclaim my life. I was looking for how to go about it and came across this site and they simplified and made the process of divorce easy for me. I never thought it would’ve been possible.

Stress-free and easy! I was initially gonna hire a lawyer but I found online divorce the next best option. No muss, no fuss divorce. No big legal words that I’d have to have read 10 times to understand!

Marco P.

Marco P., California

California is expensive and divorce can be even more expensive in the end but I can say that this site payed everything out for me to follow, from child support to alimony. My ex agreed to go this way as well so it was a much less expensive option for us.

Tamara B.

Tamara B., Nevada

Because of the whole dissolution of the marriage, I was struggling with two children and just in limbo with my husband at the time because of child support and alimony. I was a stay-at-home mom for 10 years. I just want to say that this site helped me sort it out. Thank you.

Theresa S.

I live in upstate NY and unfortunately one day I found myself in a situation for divorce. I was all out of whack, needed answers to take action. Enough was enough so I did it on this site. Everything was clear to understand, all forms and what to put in which box.

Custody of the child in Nevada

Custody of the child

Joint or sole custody is given to one or both parents based on the best interests of the child and upon the following factors:

  • The preference of the child, if the child is of sufficient age and maturity;
  • The desires of the parents [no preference is to be given because of parent’s gender];
  • Whether a parent has committed domestic abuse;
  • Which parent is more likely to allow the child to continue a relationship with the other parent
  • The level of conflict between the parents;
  • The child's developmental, emotional, and physical needs;
  • The parent’s willingness to cooperate to meet the child’s needs;
  • The parent’s mental and physical health
  • The child's relationship with each parent and siblings, if any;
  • Other relevant factors.

There is a presumption of joint custody if both parents agree to joint custody in open court or put it in writing. It is important to realize that joint legal custody doesn't necessarily mean that the parents will both have equal time with the children. The determination can be different in some cases. [Nevada Revised Statutes; Chapter 125C, Sections 001 through 0075]

In some divorces, child custody can be set up as a short-term solution to be revisited at a later date if the family or living situation is expected to change dramatically.

Rules for child support in Nevada

Child support is designed to ensure that the children of divorcing parents will have access to the same level of care and lifestyle that they had before the divorce took place. After all, the children should not suffer because the parents choose to divorce. Child support is not meant to be punitive in nature.

Nevada has put into place specific state-mandated child support guidelines which apply in almost every case, barring exceptional circumstances. With this, both parties’ gross incomes and certain child-related expenses are considered when calculating the child support obligation.

In the majority of cases, child support payments continue until the child reaches eighteen years of age and can extend until the completion of secondary school.

Temporary and permanent child support may be granted depending on the needs of the children. There are official Child Support percentages contained in Nevada Revised Statutes; Chapter 125B, Section 070.

These guidelines are assumed to be correct unless there is a showing that the child’s needs would not be met under the particular circumstances in a case. Factors for deviation from the guideline percentages are:

  • The cost of health insurance;
  • The cost of any childcare;
  • Any special educational needs of the child;
  • The ages of the children;
  • The responsibility of the parents to provide for the support of others;
  • The value of services that are contributed by the parents;
  • Any public aid paid to the child;
  • Any pregnancy expenses that must be covered;
  • Any visita­tion travel expenses when the parents don’t live near one another;
  • The amount of time the child spends with each parent;
  • The relative income of each parent; and
  • Any other necessary expenses. [Nevada Revised Statutes; Chapter 125, Section 230 and Chapter 125B, Section 070, 080, and 090]

Rules for spousal support in Nevada

Rules for spousal support

Alimony, which is sometimes known as spousal support, is sometimes ordered by the court to allow one spouse to live in a manner established during the marriage after the divorce. It is often ordered if one spouse has a much higher earning power than the other. Such as if one spouse had served as a homemaker during much of the marriage.

The couple can decide on support together before filing, or the court can award it in a contested case. The court may award rehabilitative (short-term) or more permanent alimony to either of the spouses in either lump-sum payments or as monthly/yearly payments or both.

In Nevada, there are no detailed rules regarding how support is to be assigned. However, it is important to realize that either of the spouses may be ordered to provide support to the other without regard to gender. The court can consider the following factors when deciding on alimony:

  • Each spouse's financial circumstances;
  • Each spouse's property;
  • Each spouse's contribution to any property;
  • The length of the marriage;
  • Each spouse's income, earning capacity, age, and health;
  • The standard of living before the divorce;
  • The career of the spouse seeking support before the marriage;
  • The existence of specialized education or training by each spouse during the marriage;
  • The contribution of either spouse as homemaker;
  • The property granted to the spouse seeking support by the court in the divorce; and
  • Each spouse's physical and mental condition. [Nevada Revised Statutes; Chapter 125, Section 150]

More details regarding spousal support will be given after you begin filling out your questionnaire.

Property division in Nevada

Property division

When a couple chooses to divorce in Nevada, they must distribute property in a fair and agreeable manner.

Nevada is deemed a “community property” state. The spouses keep all separate property acquired before the marriage or received by gift or inheritance. The court will then divide all of the community property and all of the property held jointly by the spouses, including any retirement benefits. Marital fault is not a factor.

Either spouse’s property is then subject to distribu­tion for alimony or child support. Separate property that one spouse contributed to purchase or improve community property may be returned to the contributing spouse. [Nevada Revised Statutes; Chapter 125, Section 150 and 210]
