How Nevada Courts Review Child Custody Cases

Child custody involves specific agreements for the legal custody, physical custody, and 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 the court determines is in the best interests of the child. Factors that could be considered in a child custody order include:

  • History of child abuse
  • The child's proximity to other siblings
  • The level of conflict between the parents
  • The child's relationship with each of the parents
  • The mental, emotional, and physical condition of the parents
  • The child's physical, emotional, and mental condition and needs
  • If the child is over 12 years of age, the court may ask of the child's personal wishes

If you are involved in divorce, legal separation, a paternity dispute, or terminating parenting rights due to domestic violence or child abuse and neglect, then working with an experienced Las Vegas divorce attorney will be crucial to protecting your child's well-being and your parenting privileges.

Are you in the process of fighting for child custody? Call (702) 996-6052 today!

If parents cannot come to a mutual agreement outside of court through mediation, your child custody decision could be subject to court intervention. Simply put, the family court judge will have wide discretion in a child custody arrangement. Who would you rather decide a child custody agreement for your child: you or the court?

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.
