When Life Changes, the Family Law Attorneys at Surratt Law Can Help
Leaders in Family Matters
Family law is an emotionally driven area of law since it directly impacts your loved ones. If you are going through a divorce, child custody case, or separation, we can assist you. We provide services in all sub-areas of Nevada family law. Family law is sometimes referred to as domestic relations law or matrimonial law. Examples of legal matters that we can assist you with include contested and uncontested divorces, legal separations, child custody, child support, grandparent visitation, guardianships, and marital agreements (pre- and post-nuptial).
Do you want your family to grow? We provide family formation services for you to become a parent through domestic adoption, second parent adoption, stepparent adoption, surrogacy, egg donation, embryo donation or sperm donation. Surratt Law Practice was the leader in legislative reform in Nevada for parentage, adoption, and surrogacy. We assist clients with babies in both the State of Nevada and the State of California. We are on the legal forefront on all relevant United States and international matters for surrogacy and reproductive rights.
You spend a lifetime building up your wealth, paying off your debt, creating a business or creating a home. Do you want to protect those assets for your future generations? Most of us do not understand why we need “Estate Planning”. Often, people believe they do not have enough assets to make it worth their time and hard-earned money. This is a mistake. First, it may cost less than you think to prepare the necessary documents. If you have children or other important people in your life, planning your estate now could save your loved one’s heartache and stress in a time of grief. We can assist you with wills, trusts, living wills (advance directives), homesteading, financial powers of attorney, and durable powers of attorney for financial matters and health care.
We Are Leaders in Family Legal Matters
From cradle to grave, Surratt Law Practice helps clients navigate through the legal side of life. With each new phase comes changes and challenges that may warrant the need for a family law attorney. When families are seeking to grow, Surratt Law Practice has the parentage attorneys to help guide clients in preparing and filing the right documentation. When a family structure dissolves or changes through divorce, we help parents collaborate to implement a sense of structure into a child’s new normal. As death, divorce, health changes, and familial growth occur, we help Nevadans design and build an estate plan that serves their family now and in the future.

How to Avoid Probate in Nevada
Most people already have assets that will avoid Probate after their death. The most basic of these are jointly titled assets and beneficiary designated documents like life insurance or retirement. However, there are still other asset that are exposed and could easily be modified to become “Non-Probate” assets. The largest assets that are exposed to probate often include the real property, a business and non-retirement investment accounts.
