Is Nevada a Community Property State?

A community property state is a state in which property is divided equally among both parties in a divorce by the judge handling the divorce. Nevada is one of eleven states in the U.S. that utilize community property laws.
In Nevada, any property or income acquired during the course of the marriage is considered to be community property and is equally owned by both parties in the marriage. There are a few exceptions to this rule including:

  • Something given as a gift to one individual
  • An inheritance given to one individual
  • Property that was distributed prior to the marriage via prenuptial agreement
  • Separate property (property that was owned by one party prior to the marriage)

The community property law also applies to debts, meaning that debts acquired during the course of the marriage are shared equally by both parties. When determining how to divide up the community property in a divorce, a Nevada judge will not take fault into consideration.

What Asset & Debt Information Is Important to My Case?
