Parents wishing to relocate outside of Nevada with a child must obtain permission from the Family Court if the child’s parents share joint custody. The Court will allow the move if it is in the child’s best interests. To learn more about child relocation, contact attorney Kari Molnar, at Molnar Family Law. Relocation cases are often hotly contested and Kari has extensive experience in both helping parents who need to move outside of Nevada with their child as well as helping those who wish for their child to remain in our state.
Nevada Joint Physical Custody Lawyers
Whether you are a father seeking to relocate with your child or you want to prevent the child’s mother from moving away with your child, Kari Molnar, Esq. has the experience and legal know-how to represent you. Our office will work with fathers to prove to the court why a move is or is not in the best interest of the children. This differs from the standard applied when a Nevada parent with primary custody wishes to relocate. We help Nevada fathers who wish to relocate or wish to challenge relocation if it will damage their relationships with their children.
The Nevada Supreme Court defines joint custody as any relationship where each parent has the child at least 40 percent of the time. In other words, if you have your child at least 40 percent of the time then the other parent cannot move your child out of state unless it is in your child’s best interests. If you have questions about your child’s custody and relocation, we will explain child relocation law in Nevada, help you understand your options, and build your case for or against the move of your child.
Some factors the court will consider include:
- The nature of the relationship of the children with each of the parents
- The ability of each parent to continue a meaningful relationship with the children
- How visitation will be arranged
- The ability of the parents to work together and cooperate
Kari’s extensive experience as a family law attorney allows her to know what evidence to gather, and what questions to ask, to ensure that you have the proof you need to deal with the child custody factors listed above. Hiring Kari ensures that your rights remain protected.
