Legal Separation & Separate Maintenance

There are times when a person wishes to change their legal relationship status, but remain married. Reasons include religious views, health insurance coverage, disability, access to assisted living, and tax planning. A Legal Separation, also know as Separate Maintenance, can determine spouses’ rights to property, alimony, child custody, child support and more while spouses remained legally married. PulverLaw can guide you through this process.  

Joint Petitions

Often divorcing couples know how they want to resolve their divorce and child custody issues without extensive legal intervention.  Joint Petitions for Divorce are inexpensive and quick ways to meet these needs. PulverLaw will explain your rights and obligations and help you efficiently and fairly resolve your divorce issue.  

Prenupial Agreements

Nevada law allows and enforces prenuptial agreements. Prenuptial agreements allow persons to define their rights as to property, alimony, estate planning and much more prior to marriage. A person may wish to protect separate property, real estate, business and investment interests owned prior to marriage. A person may also wish to establish or extinguish alimony rights in the event of a divorce.  Many couples use prenuptial agreements to define rights to income and property during marriage. Prenuptial agreements give couples the peace of mind necessary to focus on what is really important, a happy working marriage. Prenuptial agreements can also make the divorce process simpler as both parties agree about their rights and obligations ahead of time. Whether you wish PulverLaw to draft a pre-nuptial agreement on your behalf, or review one presented to you by your fiancée, PulverLaw is ready to assist you.  

Child Custody

Your children are the most important people in your life. Nevada has two types of physical custody arrangements. Joint physical custody is where the parents share equal or nearly equal time with their children. Primary physical custody means one parent has the children more than sixty percent of the time. Child custody determinations are critical in determining time spent with a child, establishing child support, as well as the legal standards applied to modification of child custody, child support, and relocation. PulverLaw is experienced in all aspects of child custody issues.  

Legal Custody

Legal custody describes with which parent has the right to make major life decisions in a child’s life including medical, religious, and educational needs. Generally, legal custody is shared by both parents; however this is not always the case. PulverLaw will assist you in obtaining the legal custody arraignment that suits the best interests of your children.  

Child Support

Child support is based on formulas established by the Nevada Legislature. PulverLaw can help determine what child support amount is appropriate based on the custody arrangements ordered or agreed upon and what adjustments should be made to these sums. Whether you seek to establish child support or modify an existing child support award, PulverLaw is here to assist you. PulverLaw can help with child support enforcement, collection and arreages. PulverLaw is skilled in establishing and collecting interstate child support.  

Relocation

Relocation involves one parent moving from Nevada with the child. Relocation is a complex area of family law. A parent may not relocate outside the State of Nevada with a child without either the written consent of the remaining parent or a Court Order. PulverLaw is experienced in litigating relocation cases on behalf of parents.  

Alimony

Alimony is frequently an issue in a divorce or post divorce matters. In Nevada, there are no formulas for alimony and sums are determined by the Court based on a variety of factors. PulverLaw can advise you about reasonable alimony expectations. PulverLaw will help you determine if alimony is appropriate and what amount is reasonable.
