Self Help Divorce, Custody and Guardianship Forms

 FIFTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT

 ***IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE***

These forms and instructions are provided as a courtesy only. The Fifth Judicial District, the accompanying Courts, and their employees SHALL NOT BE LIABLE for errors contained within or for direct, indirect, special, or consequential damages in connection with providing this material.

Many family law matters involve complex and valuable legal rights. These forms and instructions are basic general forms and DO NOT fit all situations. If your situation does not fit the general forms you will need to perform additional legal research or consult an attorney.

It is always recommended that you consult with an attorney before attempting to use self-help. This is especially true if your case involves unique or complicated issues. Most family law issues affect significant legal rights. Some rights cannot be adequately protected without the assistance of an attorney.

When representing yourself, you are responsible for understanding the law that governs your case and for filing the proper legal documents. The law provides for exceptions in some situations. If your case involves special circumstances these exceptions may apply to you. Fifth Judicial District Self Help forms do not include information on these exceptions. Applicable laws and rules are set out in the Nevada Revised Statutes, The Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure, and other local rules governing the jurisdiction in which you are filing your documents.

By signing these documents and filing them with the court, you agree to the following:

• You have carefully read the documents;• You understand all the terms and conditions in the documents;
• You agree with everything in the documents; and
• You are aware of all of the consequences that may occur as a result of filing.

Note that if you, the other party, or your children have ties to a state other than Nevada (i.e. you recently moved here or you have orders from another state) you should consult an attorney BEFORE filing any documents because the court may not have jurisdiction over you. However, once you file certain documents, the court will have jurisdiction and you WILL NOT be able to change that.

The Fifth Judicial District Self Help forms are provided in .pdf format. You may print out the documents and hand write in the provided blanks. Please do not leave blank spaces. Either fill in the appropriate answer or write "N/A" in each space.
