Military motherThis is the first post in a series which will address the issue of how serving in the Air Force, or other branches of the armed services, impacts child relocation cases in Las Vegas, Nevada. I previously discussed military members moving a child out of state as a general matter. In this series I will be expanding upon that discussion by addressing several specific issues. I feel this is necessary due to the fact that moving out of state is a situation which often causes tension between parents. The goal of my coming articles is to provide information which will help people to more fully understand their options. It is also my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a family law attorney. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.

I will be addressing a number of topics over my coming articles. The issues which I will address include:

  • Relocation requests, by a parent with primary custody, which are based on a transfer order
  • How the Court will consider situations in which the parents share joint custody
  • How the Court will deal with the issue of deployment

These are important issues for parents to understand. First, when a military parent has primary custody, and is given orders to transfer, then the Court, for obvious reasons, will not question the requesting parent’s reason for the move. This can make winning a relocation case easier for that parent. Second, in situations where parents share joint custody, the Clark County Family Court Judge’s concern will be with the sole interests of the child. Finally, if a military parent is given permission to move with the child, then the handling of deployment will likely be addressed in the Court’s orders. Knowing how the Court will address such issues is crucial.

One point I cannot stress enough is the need to contact a Las Vegas child relocation lawyer immediately if you are serving in the Air Force and are involved in a move away case. Again, such matters are highly contested and it is important that you retain quality representation. I devote my practice to the handling of family law and I am ready to assist you.
