Father’s Rights in Nevada
There exists a common myth that it is virtually impossible for a Father to get custody of their child(ren) which most likely dates back to earlier generations where the courts and states did seem to favor placement of child custody with the mother, leaving the father to be “weekend Dad”, at best. Even as the courts and states have grown more progressive, the myth about Fathers not getting a fair shake in custody situations exists.
Nevada law has a clear preference for joint physical custody in order and does not allow custody determinations based solely on the fact that a parent is a mother or a father.
Over the years we have represented many Fathers in divorce and custody proceedings and generally feel that the courts apply all of the above law in their decisions. We have had numerous cases wherein we have obtained joint, sole or primary custody for a Father. In many of these cases the Fathers had come to us with extremely low expectations due to the myths concerning Father’s rights.
If you are a Father and want to be involved in your child’s life and have not done so because you believed the myth that Father’s rights do not exist, we strongly recommend you seek a legal consultation to assess your situation further. We are a law firm and you will speak to an actual attorney, not a paralegal service, about what your custody rights are and how you can maximize those rights.
