Divorce and Criminal Questions Asked and Answered with Louis Schneider

Some legal information that we offered for free on our last show.

When getting an amicable divorce (also called uncontested divorce) in Las Vegas, even though Nevada is a community property state, the parties can divide up the assets and debts any way they want because of the constitutional right to contract that Nevada takes very seriously, even among spouses.  There are several caveats, however, such as that the agreement should have waivers and full disclosure clauses. When undergoing an uncontested divorce, a Las Vegas family law attorney is recommended.

When someone dies without a will in Nevada, the property is divided according to the intestate succession statutes per stirpes.

Marijuana is legal in Colorado and Washington.  What if a person uses it in one of the states that it is legal in and then comes to Nevada and gets injured on the job?  Can the person be fired for having the pot in his system?  If you smoked a joint five days ago, you would still be under the influence according to Las Vegas DUI laws--it would still be in the blood stream.
