Las Vegas Divorces
Nevada legalized gambling and liberalized divorce laws in 1931. After only six weeks of residency, a "quickie" divorce could be granted. It paved the way for Las Vegas to become the nation's divorce capital. The travelers that came for divorces stayed at dude ranches.
Today, Nevada divorce laws still require one of the divorcing parties to establish six weeks residency in the state and a Resident Witness (who has been a Nevada resident for at least twelve months) must attest that you were in the state for all of the six-week period. The divorcing party must also have the intent to permanently reside in the State of Nevada at the time the divorce action is filed. Both divorcing parties must sign the Joint Petition for Divorce.
This process is relatively inexpensive for those parties that can agree to an amicable divorce. The cost of filing a divorce petition in Clark County is $152, payable in cash, money order, or local check with valid photo ID.
An annulment dissolves the marriage as though it never occurred in the first place and both spouses are returned to their prior marital status. There must be extenuating circumstances for a marriage to be annulled, such as lack of consent being caused by intoxication or substance abuse, close blood relationship, fraud, underage, married but not divorced, etc.
Domestic Partnership information is provided by the office of the Carson City Secretary of State and can be reached at 800-992-0900 or at www.nvsos.gov
