Family law bindersThis is the next post in my series on making an emergency change of child custody request in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A simple disagreement between the parents will not likely be seen as an “emergency.” In this post I will discuss the process of requesting an immediate hearing when situations warrant it.

Child Custody Matters Which Las Vegas Family Courts Will Not Rule On – Series Recap

Posted by on May 8, 2017 in Child Custody | 0 comments

Judge pounding gavelThis is the final post in my series on issues which the Clark County Family court will and will not rule on after basic custodial issues have been established. I began this series because after a couple splits up it is not unusual for the two parents to have strong and differing opinions on certain child-related issues.
