Fathers’ rights lawyer aggressively handling child custody matters in Las Vegas
Nevada law recognizes the rights of a father as being equal to those of a mother during divorce or child custody proceedings. Clark County Family Court Judges are required to begin each case with a presumption that neither parent is a better custodial choice than the other and that custody should be shared. If a parent wishes to obtain primary custody in our state then it must be shown that joint custody would not be in the child’s best interests. When deciding what is in a child’s best interests, the Court will consider factors such as:
- The history of the relationship between the parent and child
- The level of conflict between the parties
- The ability of the parent to meet the needs of the child
- The willingness of one parent to work with another
- Whether there is a history of domestic violence in the relationship
Courts will often enter a temporary custody arrangement shortly after a case has been filed. This temporary arrangement will typically stay in place until a case is settled or until trial and will also include provisions regarding child support. It will be necessary to present your situation to the Judge in the best possible manner. Having an attorney who can properly guide you through the process can be critical to the outcome of your case.
