Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada provides free legal services to low-income families and individuals in need of assistance. We offer legal classes, counsel, advice, and direct representation, with priority given to victims of domestic violence. A divorce is a legal action that terminates a marriage. In a divorce case, the court can make orders regarding custody, visitation, support, distribution of property and debt, and can restore a maiden name.
To apply for legal representation for a divorce case, you must first attend the free Divorce class. Click here to see the class schedule in English.
