The price of a divorce can be a couple of hundred dollars or several hundred thousand dollars. There are lots of reasons for this.
First, where you file for divorce can cause fees to go up. Fees vary from county to county. Some counties may be cheaper than others to file. Also, the type of divorce you file (uncontested, joint petition, contested) can make divorce costs go up. If you hire an attorney, the fees can also vary depending on how complicated your case is.

Beware of services promising a divorce for $150 or $500 – make sure this includes all fees and costs and make sure the case is being handled by an attorney. It is always best to meet with a divorce lawyer to discuss your specific case.
The fastest way to get divorced in Nevada is with a joint petition. A joint petition divorce means that the spouses agree on how everything will be split up. Usually, it takes about 72 hours from the time the joint petition is filed until the divorce is finalized. With a joint petition, there is no court required. It is just paperwork.
Joint petitions can be complicated and require detailed paperwork. If you are interested in learning more about a joint petition for your divorce, we recommend that you consult with an attorney to discuss the specifics.

Second, it will depend on your financial situation. You may need to buy out your spouse’s community property interest in the house. If you have enough funds to do this, or if you can refinance the home and take cash out to pay off your ex, you may be able to keep your home.
