This post is being written to conclude and recap my series on the rights of unmarried fathers in the state of Nevada. I felt it was necessary to write on this issue as there are, still, many misconceptions as to the rights of unwed parents. It is common for individuals to think that a mother has “all the rights” in such a situation. The truth of the matter, however, is that Nevada is a state which presumes joint custody of the child. The goal of my recent articles has been to provide information which will help people 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 to speak with a fathers’ rights lawyer.
I have discussed several topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:
- How Nevada views the rights of unmarried fathers
- How unwed dads can win custody
- Dealing with unmarried mothers trying to move out of state
- Protecting one’s parental rights as a general matter
There are several reasons why I chose to address these topics. First, Nevada is like many states in that it presumes that a mother and father should share custody of a child. This means that custody will be “joint” unless the Court finds that such an arrangement would not be in the best interest of the child. Second, a father can win custody by showing facts which demonstrate that the child would be better off in his care a majority of the time. Third, Nevada differs from many other states in that a parent must seek permission from the Court to move, even if no custody case has been filed. Finally, it is important for dads to obtain a custody order even if they are currently on good terms with the mother.
