Board Certified Las Vegas Divorce Attorney
The Divorce Process
In any divorce matter, it is important to protect your rights as early as possible. The first step is to secure sound legal advice from a board certified divorce attorney. By doing so, you are able to use their expert advice to your advantage.
The decisions you make at the time of separation and during the divorce process are critical to your rights and likely to the outcome of your case. Most people going through a divorce have many questions and are not sure what the divorce process entails. We can answer your questions, give you peace of mind, and guide you during every phase of your divorce matter.
Three Categories of Divorce Proceedings
There are three general categories of divorce proceedings: Contested, Uncontested, and Joint Petition. Our law firm exclusively represents clients in Contested and Uncontested divorces only. We do not provide Joint Petition Divorces where one lawyer represents both spouses.
Beware if your spouse suggests that you use his/her lawyer. This is a critical mistake in divorce matters. Your interests are best protected by completely independent legal counsel provided by an experienced Las Vegas divorce lawyer.
Divorce Matter Resolution
Divorce cases are resolved in a variety of ways. Spouses that wish to avoid litigation may choose to go through divorce mediation. This form of resolution has many benefits but both parties must be open to the mediation process. Learn more about Divorce Mediation
The most common form of resolution is through a negotiated settlement. The Las Vegas divorce attorneys for each spouse conduct negotiations through the entire divorce matter. If a negotiated settlement agreement can be reached, a Decree of Divorce will be drafted and submitted to the Clark County Family Court for approval and recording.
If an agreement cannot be reached, the resolution of the case will be through a non-jury trial. The family court judge assigned to your case will make final determinations based on the evidence and witness testimony presented by the divorce attorneys representing both spouses.

Divorce Client Benefits
One of the most important aspects of any divorce matter is communication between you and your Las Vegas divorce lawyer. You will speak directly with your attorney, in an in-depth consultation, before any work begins on your case. Your attorney, along with one of our Certified Paralegals, will be your primary points of contact until your matter is resolved. The partners of the firm are certified by the State Bar of Nevada as Family Law Specialists. Learn more about Board Certification
Divorce related issues do not exclusively occur during regular business hours. At the inception of your case, you will be provided with your attorney's private cell phone number. Your attorney is available 24/7, including holidays, for urgent communications.

"You never want to have to hire an attorney for a divorce but if you do, then Attorney Vince Mayo and the Abrams Law Firm are the best in Las Vegas. I experienced a very difficult and complicated divorce and Vince got me through it with as little pain as possible. I always felt like he would do whatever it took to make it work out for me and he treated me more like a friend than a client."
