One of the most difficult things about many divorces is asset division. In most cases, couples who have been together for years have grown their financial standing considerably since the day they said "I do." This means that there will be many shared resources, financial accounts and other assets that need to be divided.
Nevada is a "community property" state. This means that property -- with certain exceptions -- acquired by one or the other spouse during the course of the marriage will be divided equally between them. This same theory of property division also applies to debts and liabilities.
