What Are My Rights During The Divorce Process?
There’s a lot of misconceptions about what you can and cannot do during your divorce process.
The most important thing I want you to remember about divorce in Nevada is that Nevada is a community property state, and what that means that you and your spouse are equally responsible for any debts or equally able to share in any assets or any community property that you two have acquired during the marriage.
For example, during your divorce process, each spouse has a right to 50% of the share of all the property and all the assets acquired during the marriage. Another thing that you have the right to is if for example, one spouse makes significantly more money than the other and the lesser earning spouse is dependent on that income, then the court may award temporary alimony during the divorce process. That is something we’ll need to request the court to do, but that is one of your rights if you are in that situation.
Another right that you have is to the marital home. No one, your spouse, can kick you out of your home. You have the right to stay in your home during the divorce process. Even if the house is in your spouse’s name, that spouse can not tell you to get out until the divorce is final. You have the right to remain in the marital home until the divorce is final.
And finally, custody of the children. While you’re going through a divorce, you both have the same equal right to custody of the children. So basically you’ll be sharing 50% custody during the course of the divorce.
So these are a few, and the most popular, questions that I get about issues during a divorce. Remember, 50/50 is what you’re looking for in all of your debts and all of your property, possible temporary alimony or spousal support based on the incomes of the parties. You have the right to stay in your marital home, no one can kick you out, and you have the right to joint custody of your children while a divorce is pending.
