Q. What part of NRS.150 specifically says that the alimony recipient can no longer receive alimony after remarriage?
A: Look at Paragraph 6: NRS 125.150  Alimony and adjudication of property rights; award of attorney’s fee; postjudgment motion; subsequent modification by court.  Except as otherwise provided in NRS 125.155 and 125.165, and unless the action is contrary to a premarital agreement between the parties which is enforceable pursuant to chapter 123A of NRS: ( prior sections 1- 5 removed for space) 6.  In the event of the death of either party or the subsequent remarriage of the spouse to whom specified periodic payments were to be made, all the payments required by the decree must cease, unless it was otherwise ordered by the court.
Q. Im married and live in nevada state my husband and i have a child together . We are separating and ive decided to move
A: At the very least you want to get his agreement in writing. The safest best would be to open a court case and file the agreement in that case.
Q. What happens with a family trust in a divorce? We own a house together, cars and joint bank accounts.
A: I agree with the other attorney's answer. Most of the time the Court will "break the trust" especially if the trust is revokable and for estate planning purposes. One the court decides if it will break the trust then it will decided on the designation of the property ( separate or community or mixed) based on the facts of the case.
