Bonnie was patient and extremely knowledgeable helping me with all aspects of my divorce, mediation, This was my first experience working with a lawyer. Bonnie was patient and extremely knowledgeable helping me with all aspects of my divorce, mediation, and custody options every step of the way. She is very ethical and prompt in her correspondence, and she helped me through any difficult situations that arose during my case. I really appreciated Bonnie’s honest and forthcoming approach. She balanced empathy and business so delicately. She informed me without sugar coating things to what I wanted to hear, but instead, what would be best for me to win my case. Bonnie is a powerful attorney and did not let opposing counsel walk all over me. I felt supported, encouraged and we won everything I wanted! I am so very happy with the service Bonnie and her team provided I would HIGHLY recommend her and her firm. Thank you again Bonnie.

Legal Answers
96 Questions Answered
Q. Can you get a joint annulment for fraud?
A: Nevada law does not have a time limit to annul a marriage, however three years seems to be the general consensus. that is not to say that the annulment will not be granted if the marriage is longer than the three years, but to get the annulment you must meet the requirements which are you either got married in the state or are a resident of the state. In your situation, your reason for an annulment is fraud and although every case is proven on a case-by-case basis, the more evidence you can provide to prove the fraud to the judge, the stronger your case will be and the length of the marriage may not be a deterrent to negate the annulment.
Q. My husband had an affair. We've been back and forth on getting a divorce or trying to work it out.
A: Based on your description of your husband's request, It appears that your husband is looking to get Primary Physical custody of the children in exchange for taking all the marital debt. I cannot counsel you on what is best for you and your family, but can tell you that the court's in Nevada have a preference for Joint Custody as they believe it is in the children's best interest.
Q. My wife has filed for divorce. We were married in 2012. We have been separated about 75% of that time. No children
A: She should not be entitled to your retirement as it was earned prior to your marriage. However, the income you receive from the retirement monthly may be used to calculate your total income in order to calculate spousal support amount.
