Las Vegas Child Visitation Attorney

Working with Parents & Relatives To Get Visitation Time

Visitation, also known as parenting time, refers to an agreement that is made between a separating couple. Visitation specifically determines how many times per month a parent can visit a child. Typically, visitation orders are combined with a parenting plan. A parenting plan is the written form of a mutually agreed upon visitation schedule between parents.

Different types of visitation orders can include:

  • Grandparents' rights to visitation
  • Unsupervised visitation
  • Supervised visitation

    Do Fathers Have Rights in Nevada?

    Yes, fathers have rights in Nevada as this is considered a father state. To exercise a father's legal rights, the child's father must officially establish paternity.

    Each parent in Nevada has the right to legal custody of their child unless proven unfit.

    If you need assistance with establishing visitation, a Las Vegas family law attorney from Leavitt Law Firm is here to help! We know that you want to protect your child and we know how important it is to you to have access to your child for as long and as often as possible. To protect your parenting time and parental rights, it is important to enlist the help of an experienced Las Vegas visitation attorney from the outset.

    Draft Your Unique Visitation & Parenting Plan

    If parties disagree about child custody or visitation, the case may be required to go through the family court's Family Mediation Center. Your visitation agreement discussions will be monitored by a third party. The goal of mediation is to make a visitation agreement or parenting plan that will clearly lay out agreed terms of child custody, including physical and legal custody, as well as visitation issues.

    If mediation fails, or if a separating couple cannot make an agreement for visitation, the family court may subject the couple to court intervention. From there, a judge will have wide discretion in making a visitation order. Oftentimes, a court order for visitation fails to take into account all of the factors of your family's unique situation.
