Clients consulting with the Immigration Law Office of Los Angeles, P.C. often ask if we advise them to obtain a Las Vegas divorce because it takes less time than a California one.  An average divorce in California takes around six months, while in Las Vegas it could be as short as six weeks.  We recommend that unless you are truly a Nevada resident, you file for divorce in the state you are currently residing, or you could face long delays or even denials when applying for immigration benefits.

In order to be granted a divorce in Nevada by a family law judge, one must be a resident of that state for six weeks.  In order to prove residency, an Affidavit of Resident Witness is required from someone who lives in Nevada and can testify on your behalf that he or she has personal knowledge that you lived in Nevada for six weeks.
