While the Nevada courts do not make a distinction for a divorce by a member of the military, there are specific custody and property issues that must be taken into consideration. Special consideration must be taken regarding the military pension, health care, and parenting rights when the service member is subject to long-term deployment. We have helped numerous active duty U.S. military and their dependent spouses through the complexity of divorce in Nevada courts.
