Family Law – Divorce

There is no question that when dealing with matters of family law we are dealing with the most important parts of our clients lives. Divorce is one area where there is no doubt this is the case.

Nevada is a no-fault divorce state. No-fault indicates that when the court is making its decision on the divorce it does not assess blame for the divorce on any party involved and therefore there is no punishment for either party desiring to terminate the marriage. No-fault also indicates that you don’t have to have specific grounds for getting the divorce. One party needs to simply allege that there is a breakdown in the marriage and that it is irretrievably broken with no prospect of repair.

We understand however that there is a party that has fallen short of the marital vows and has breached the marital agreement and we will use those factors the best interest of our clients.

Personal Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

The vast numbers of people, including Lawyers, do not understand the existence and power of Chapter 11 Bankruptcies for individuals.

Through the process we can modify nearly all debt, including 1st Mortgages, to the market value of the property. Also, the individual debtor keeps their property and pays back very little of the debt owed. If you own multiple properties this is a great opportunity to make a property that is “under water” or “upside down” and make it even with the market and most likely make it cash flow positive.
