Nevada is a “community property state.” What does that mean for you? If your marital residence is in Nevada, the law presumes that all of your assets and debts should be split down the middle in the event of a divorce. To protect your assets and income from the community property system, you need an experienced family law attorney on your side.

Is a Prenuptial Agreement Right for You? Find Experienced, Assertive and Compassionate Representation at the Law Offices of Marta L. Presti.
While many people feel that a prenuptial agreement can take the romance out of marriage, and they may indeed not be right for every couple, it may be a helpful tool for protecting your interests and reducing financial stress and possible future discord. When drafted properly by an experienced lawyer, in a timely manner before the wedding, a prenuptial agreement can provide peace of mind for both parties, particularly those with significant assets or those entering a second or third marriage who want to protect their children.
Contrary to popular belief, a prenuptial agreement may be able to help you solidify the foundation of your marriage by eliminating much of the uncertainty. An agreement before the marriage or even one drafted afterwards can be used to clarify what property you and your spouse will consider community property. In the event that your relationship should end, having a clear property agreement in place can help eliminate some of the acrimony and costs involved in divorce.
