Going through a divorce battle may be one of the most emotional and difficult events someone can face. Ms. Aklestad has handled over 100 divorces, representing both men and women. While divorces may seem adversarial, Ms. Aklestad will work hard to make the process as smooth and painless as possible.
Dealing with custody issues may be the hardest aspect of family law. Having to file for child custody involves the well-being of your children. There are 2 main aspects of child custody, physical (where the child resides) and legal (basic parental rights). In Nevada it is in the child’s best interest for their parents to have joint custody. The child’s best interest is the number one factor that the Court will take into consideration when determining a custody outcome.
If you are charged with driving under the influence, the Court will determine whether you are guilty or not by a few different factors. The most important and probably well known is the “BAC” blood alcohol content. The current legal limit is Nevada is nor more than 0.08 grams of alcohol in 100 millimeters of blood while driving. If you’ve been accused of charged with DUI, speak with Ms. Aklestad to begin building your defense. Whether you committed the alleged crime or were falsely accused, Ms. Aklestad will fight for your rights.
The State of Nevada takes domestic violence cases very seriously. Domestic violence doesn’t just encompass a husband and wife relationship, but can also include family members. The consequences for domestic violence can be lifelong. If you’re being charged with a violence charge, having Alyssa on your team means being able to protect yourself and your future.
Considered the most serious criminal charge in Nevada, a felony can cause the world around you to change. District Attorney’s in Nevada, specifically Clark County often over charge and individuals often end up being punished for more than they deserve. In certain situations, innocent people are charged due to mistakes by police, witnesses, or the district attorney themselves. If you are found guilty, punishment can include: prison, revocation of rights such as voting and owning a firearm, and hefty fines.
The law states that children must be supported. Ms. Aklestad’s area of expertise in dealing with parents finances ensures that you are not over paying your support obligation or that you are getting the money your child is entitled to.
While misdemeanor charges aren’t as serious than a felony, it doesn’t mean they should be taken lightly. If found guilty or convicted of a misdemeanor, it can create problems for you for the rest of your life. There are several types of misdemeanors, some of the most common are:
DUI, Drug Possession, Battery, Larceny
Alimony, or spousal support, can be awarded to either spouse. A Judge may order a spouse to pay the other temporary support during the divorce proceedings. The Judge will then have to determine whether there will be alimony after the proceeding. Typically, the longer you were married, the longer you can expect to receive support if you are the spouse earning less. Alimony is also reserved to allow the spouse to find a job and/or improve their education.
When a child is born and if the paternity is in question, either parent can petition the court to establish paternity. Once paternity is established, the Court will then address issues such as: child support, child custody, health insurance,and tax deductions
