This is my sixth post in my “Understanding Nevada Divorce Series.” My last post discussed Nevada divorce and the discovery process. In this post I am going to focus on attending trial, how to prepare for trial and the possible outcomes.

Preparing for your trial in your Nevada Divorce case

This is my second post in my “Understanding Divorce” series.  I have previously discussed how understanding Nevada’s divorce process can make your case go more smoothly.  Today I will be discussing the benefits of planning ahead, being organized and prepared before meeting with a Las Vegas divorce attorney.

Be prepared to discuss any expectations you have about your divorce. Ask yourself: What is it that I would like to take away from my divorce? If there are children involved, think about what kind of custody arrangement will best suit you and your children.  Have an accurate picture of your finances and prepare to provide documentation of your finances when you meet with your attorney for the first time. This will save you time in the long run. You will only be required to provide financial information that is applicable to your situation.
