Understanding Court Considerations Regarding Child Custody

Although in Nevada joint physical custody with both parents is presumed to be in the best interest of the child, we have found that courts look at many different factors when determining custody, including:

  • The child's wishes if he or she is of a mature age
  • Animosity between the parents
  • The parents' ability to cooperate in order to meet the child's needs
  • The mental and physical health of parents
  • The mental, physical and emotional needs of the child
  • The child's relationships with the parents
  • The ability of the child to continue relationships with siblings
  • Any abuse by a parent or other person in the household or family

Attorney Christy Brad Escobar will work with you to create a comprehensive child visitation and custody arrangement that meets the best interests of your child while addressing your needs and rights as a parent. Whether you are going through a divorce or have never been married, we can help you find a solution to your custody concerns.

Creating Or Modifying Child Support Orders In Nevada

Child custody and child support are closely linked together in the state of Nevada. If a child has one primary custodian, then the court will only consider the noncustodial parent's income when establishing a support order. There are many additional child support guidelines the court uses, which our Nevada law firm can assist you in navigating. It is also important to remember that circumstances can sometimes change, resulting in a need for a child support modification or change of custody.
