Nevada is a community property state. From the day you are married until the day your divorce is final all of the property you accumulate is owned equally (50-50) by the two parties, with a few important exceptions.
The divorce and family law attorneys at the Bellon Law Group in Las Vegas, protect the financial interests of clients in divorce and legal separation. They work diligently to ensure that all marital property is divided evenly and that your separate property remains yours alone.
Separate property includes:
- Assets that belonged to you before the marriage
- Gifts made to you alone
- Court awards, such as a recovery in a personal injury claim
In some instances, separate property can become community property and vice versa. The lawyers of the Bellon Law Group will review your financial situation and develop a plan to protect your assets as much as possible.

Debt is divided in the same manner as property. Since Nevada is a community property state, the debt accumulated from the date of your marriage to the date of your divorce is divided 50-50. Your mortgage, credit card debt and other loans will be split amongst the parties evenly.
