When parents divorce, Nevada law says that the order governing child custody and visitation must reflect the young person’s best interests. Regardless of whether the outcome is determined in court or through negotiations, this can be a complex and contested process. Located in Las Vegas, the Miley Law Firm, P.C. safeguards parental rights and strives to set up arrangements that help sons and daughters move past a difficult time and thrive under their new circumstances.
As a seasoned Nevada family law attorney, I use what I’ve learned over the years to find creative, lasting solutions to the concerns that parents face when they choose to divorce or live apart. Whether your breakup was relatively amicable or bitter, I provide thorough counsel on:
Judges can review any factor that they think is relevant when deciding a contested custody matter, including each parent’s ability to provide a safe, supportive environment, the parties’ willingness to work together on key matters, and a parent’s physical, mental or financial problems that could affect the child. Assessing a young person’s relationship with each parent is a complex task, which is why you deserve an attorney who gives personalized attention to each case.
A new relationship, change in job status, family illness or some other significant event might justify relocation to a new state or a place within Nevada that affects a co-parent’s ability to see the child the parties share. As with other custody-related matters, decisions that go before the court are to be decided by what is in the child’s best interests. This can be a complex decision, especially when there are strong competing interests. In these cases and other actions seeking the modification of custody terms, I develop a sound plan to ensure that judges are fully aware of the pertinent facts and likely consequences. Whether you seek or oppose a change, my firm outlines the critical issues and advises as to the likelihood of a successful motion.
Even the most carefully constructed custody and child support arrangements will fail if violations go unchecked. Should you find that your co-parent is not honoring the terms of an order, my firm acts to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. Whether the best course requires effective communication, a motion to enforce the terms of a custody order or using wage garnishment or another measure to compel full child support payments, I am dedicated to securing the relief that clients and children are entitled to.
