This post is written to conclude and recap my series on issues which arise for Las Vegas fathers who are attempting to gain primary custody of their children. I felt it was necessary to write on this issue due to the fact that many dads do not understand their options when it comes to going forward with a child custody case. The fact of the matter is that Nevada offers many options. The goal of my recent articles has been to provide information which will help individuals to better understand their situation. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a family law attorney. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I have addressed multiple topics over the course of my recent articles. The issues which I have analyzed included:
- Evidence which Courts consider in child custody cases
- How fathers can use discovery to build a custody case
- Why some custody orders are longer lasting
- How fathers should conduct themselves after a child case
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these topics. First, dads should be aware that the Court will only consider objective evidence in such matters. A Clark County Family Judge is likely to be unreceptive to generalized claims that the mother is a “bad person.” Second, discovery is the process through which that objective evidence is collected. Third, the basis for which a father obtains custody can dictate the time for which he will be the primary custodian; if the basis for a primary custody award is only temporary then the Court may change the arrangement later. Finally, by properly conducting himself after a case, a dad can help to ensure that he does not immediately go back to Court thereafter.
A point I stressed through each of these articles is that one should contact a child custody lawyer if he is attempting to gain primary care of his son or daughter. Nevada is a state which presumes joint custody. A judge will only vary from that presumption if doing so would be in the best interests of the child. A Las Vegas fathers’ rights attorney can help to make an argument that primary custody would, in fact, be in the child’s best interests. Contact my office today to schedule an initial consultation.
