What Is Community Property?
Community property refers to the legal concept applied in Nevada and several other states, in which all assets acquired during a marriage are considered joint property of both partners. This includes wages, properties, and any debts incurred during the marital period. In the event of a divorce in Las Vegas, NV, these assets and debts are typically divided equally between the spouses, regardless of who earned or incurred them. However, it's important to note that certain exceptions exist.
What Is Not Considered Community Property in Nevada?
In Nevada, assets and debts acquired after marriage, in most cases, are considered community property.
There are some instances when this is not the case, such as property received by way of:
- Gift from a third party
- Award for personal injury damages
- And more
The interest in assets and debt is an on-going interest which means the community continues until the Court Orders are in place finalizing the marital relationship through a divorce or legal separation, unless the spouses sign a contract modifying their interest in the assets and debts. Additionally, the interest in assets and debts is typically equal. In certain circumstances, the Court may provide for an unequal distribution, but this is not a regular everyday occurrence.

What Asset & Debt Information Is Important to My Case?
When contemplating the end of a marriage, it is important to have as much information as possible regarding the assets and debts. Providing this information to the attorney in advance will help streamline a possible resolution of the case.
Often the attorneys of Roberts Stoffel Family Law Group will request the client bring them documentation regarding the assets and debts including:
- Recent bank statements
- Vehicle identification numbers
- Loan documents
- Credit card statements
- Mortgage statements
- Estimates on the value of vehicles

Using this information, we will be able to help our clients in completing a proposed asset and debt distribution.
What If I Don’t Have Access to Marital Fund Information?
In some situations, one spouse does not have access to the necessary information to do a complete asset and debt analysis. When that occurs, the attorneys of Roberts Stoffel Family Law Group are experienced and prepared to assist the client, through the use of discovery in obtaining information relevant to the issue of asset and debt distribution.
