Handling a family law challenge presents several types of difficulties, but with effective counsel from a knowledgeable attorney, you can protect yourself and those close to you. At the Miley Law Firm, P.C. in Las Vegas, my firm delivers personalized representation in various types of matters, including divorces, custody cases, child support disputes and proceedings related to alleged juvenile offenses. With more than 20 years of experience, I offer the comprehensive support that helps clients overcome obstacles and addresses their legal, financial and emotional needs.
My firm provides valuable advice and advocacy in Nevada divorce proceedings, clearly explaining key aspects of marriage dissolution within the state, including:
Nevada does not force spouses seeking a divorce into a long waiting period before the process is finalized. Each situation is unique, and contested issues can extend the timeframe, but I work diligently to resolve matters as promptly and efficiently as possible. If you’ve already been divorced and believe that you were harmed by a legal error or that the existing order should be modified, my firm can assist you in petitioning for relief.
After parents break up, everyone says they want what’s best for the children, but reaching agreement on matters such as child custody, visitation and child support can be difficult. When conflicts prevent parties from setting guidelines about residence, legal authority and other key concerns, I work to negotiate fair terms that create a healthy environment for sons and daughters. If court intervention is required to establish, modify or enforce a custody or child support order, my firm serves as an effective representative.
Situations where a child gets in trouble with the law or where parental rights are threatened require great skill and sensitivity. With more than two decades of experience, I provide thorough counsel in juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings. I take a close look at the circumstances and pursue solutions that will give young people the best chance for success now and in the future. In delinquency matters, my firm works to find alternatives to residential detention, such as community supervision, counseling and in-home monitoring. Should someone attempt to terminate your parental rights, I handle cases initiated by the Department of Family Services and vigorously challenge unfounded abuse and neglect claims.
