An experienced child custody attorney understands Nevada law and also knows the tendencies of the various family court Judges in Las Vegas. Each Judge weighs each custody factor differently.
The Legal Standard
In determining paternity in most cases, the parties will agree that the father is the only possible father. In cases where it is challenged or unsure, a paternity test can be ordered or simply done informally.
In an initial paternity proceeding, if Nevada also has jurisdiction over child custody, either parent may include child custody requests for both physical and legal custody. The court must include an order for child support as well.
Reaching an Agreement
At any time, Parties can agree to a decree of paternity, and can include child support, child custody and visitation orders. This should be done through a decree of paternity. If you need help negotiating an agreement or have reached an agreement and simply need to make sure the paperwork is done properly, McFarling Law Group can help.
