There are many types of Motions and reasons to file them. Motions can be filed during a divorce or after a divorce. For example, typical motions that may be filed in a contested divorce deal with asking the judge to make temporary decisions regarding custody, visitation, child support, possession of the marital residence and much more. A post divorce motion quite often addresses issues the co-parents are having with one another in regard to their child.
A motion (or opposition and counter motion) typically has three main components:
- What decision is it that you are asking the judge to make.
- The Nevada laws and/or case laws that allow the judge to rule in your favor.
- And usually the most important your story, facts, examples and evidence that will persuade the judge to see things your way.
Come in for the free consultation so we can discuss your particular situation and circumstances. Typically in the consultation we cover motion basics, your particular situation, (if applicable) how to deal with the other parent during the process, and last, but not least, quote you a price and discuss payment options and plans.
There are several steps to this process.
- 1. File the Motion and get a court date.
- Mail a copy of the motion to the other party.
- Come to see the friendly paralegal for a hearing preparation session at which we will discuss how to most effectively represent yourself before the judge without an attorney.
- Go to the Family Courthouse for a hearing and the judge’s decision
There are many more issues and complicating factors not touched on here. We strongly recommend the free consultation at which we can give personalized attention to you and the reasons you feel you need to see a judge for a decision on the issues that are making your life miserable and unmanageable
At this point you can go home and think about it or you can chose to get started. Once you decide to get started we will do an information intake so we have the information we will need to prepare your court documents. We will have the documents ready in 2 to 3 business days. You will come back to our office to review the documents with the family law paralegal who will explain them in detail and answer any questions you have before signing. Now we can sign and notarize the documents. The fees we quote you will include notary and court costs. Documents will be e-filed by us. Usually you don’t need to do anything except give us information, sign the documents, pay us, and go for one court appearance.
IT’S COMPLICATED, BUT WE MAKE THIS STUFF AS SIMPLE AS WE CAN.
