…many of our clients who call us on a weekly basis to start their divorce in Las Vegas ask us the same question:
“How do I prove to the court and the judge… that I have lived in Las Vegas?”
Here’s the quick scoop on making sure that you actually qualify to get a Las Vegas divorce:
- Either you or your spouse must have lived within the state of Nevada for at least six (6) weeks… before filing for the Las Vegas divorce.
- The spouse who lives in Nevada must intend to continue living in Nevada for the foreseeable future after the divorce.
- You must have a friend, family member, co-worker or some other 3rd party… sign & notarize a “Resident Witness Affidavit”, which basically states that they have seen you living in Nevada for at least six (6) weeks.
It’s that simple. You do NOT need to show any state I.D. or anything else… utility bills… paycheck stubs… or anything else to prove that you’ve lived in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas divorce court takes your word and the word of your resident witness… that you are telling the truth about actually being a Nevada resident.
If neither you or your spouse are residents of Nevada… please do NOT seek to get a divorce in Nevada.
Either wait until you have lived here for at least (6) weeks… or file for a divorce in the state that you or your spouse are actually residents of.
(We can actually prepare divorces for all 50 states and D.C.)
