How Nevada Courts Review Child Custody Cases
Child custody involves specific agreements for the legal custody, physical
visitation of a child. Nevada laws state that the legal and physical custody of a
child can include permanent or temporary orders and must be based on what

If parents cannot come to a mutual agreement outside of court through mediation,
your child custody decision could be subject to court intervention. Simply

Don't let a dispute during a divorce or legal separation cause you
to be permanently disconnected from your child's life. We know how
important it is for you to be involved in the development and growth of
your child through the years. We can help you fight for custody.
