Biography

Bonnie Lonardo is the owner and founder of LJ Law, a full-service Divorce and Family Law firm based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bonnie began her career as an attorney practicing in well-established multi-practice law firms, but saw owning her own firm as an opportunity to connect with her clients on a more personal level; to truly understand the emotion involved in each and every case, and to be able to best represent the core interests of her clients. Since opening LJ Law, Bonnie has been able to do just that for thousands of families throughout the Las Vegas Metro Area. Divorce, child custody, child support, and alimony cases are oftentimes emotionally-charged and life-altering experiences for the parties involved.

Legal Answers
104 Questions Answered
Q. Can I claim our son on my taxes, who in our decree is supposed to be claimed by my ex husband?
A: Generally speaking the parent who has primary custody claims the children on taxes UNLESS it has either been agreed or Ordered otherwise in the Decree. If your Decree states that the father is to claim 2 of the kids then its best to follow the Decree to avoid being in contempt. If you wish to have this changed due to the changes in your circumstances and avoid being in contempt, you may want to file a motion with the Court.
Q. My husband & I have agreed to file for divorce. Can we file for JOINT PETITION? Even if he resides outside of the US?
A: As long as one of the parties has lived in Nevada for at least 6 weeks prior to the filing of the Joint Petition and has established residency in Nevada, you can file the JP in Nevada. the JP can be notarized in the Philippines and filed with the court here in Nevada.
Q. My wife wants to divorce and initiated separation. I agreed to leave home. Do I have to split mortgage/bills?
A: The general rule is that while the parties are going thru the divorce process, they must maintain the status quo. This means that the mortgage and marital financial obligations such as bills, credit card payments, etc., must continue to be paid in the same manner and by the same party that was making these payments until the divorce has been finalized, unless the parties agree to another arrangement.
