Attorney Tony Liker makes effective arguments when joint child custody is not an option

Child Custody Law in Nevada defines joint custody as each parent having physical custody of their children for at least 40 percent of the time. The Clark County Family Court will begin each and every case with a presumption that the custody arrangement should be joint. If a parent wishes for the arrangement to be anything other than joint then they must demonstrate to the Court that joint custody is not in the child’s best interests. Factors that the Court will look to in determining what is in a child’s best interests include:

  • The nature of the relationship between child and parent
  • The ability of a parent to meet the child’s needs
  • The physical and mental health of each parent
  • The ability of a parent to cooperate with the other
  • Whether there is a history of domestic violence in the relationship

The Court will consider things such as witness testimony, school records, and other objective evidence in determining what is in a child’s interests. Child support will be set once custody is determined. If you are involved in a Nevada child custody dispute then you should retain an attorney immediately.
