There are several things to consider when getting divorced. Nevada is a no-fault divorce state. You can select one of two reasons for agreeing to divorce, living separately for at least one year or incompatibility. Before you can file in Nevada, you must have lived in the state for at least 6 weeks and complete an Affidavit of Resident Witness i.e. someone must sign in front of a notary that you have lived in Nevada for 6 weeks or more.
Generally, five areas must be agreed upon in a Nevada divorce: Asset Division, Debt Division, Spousal Support (if any), Child Support and Child Custody. If you and your spouse did not have children or your children are now adults, then child support and custody will not need to be addressed.
