How Child Custody Is Determined

In Nevada, there are two types of custody: Physical and legal. Physical custody refers to who the child lives with. Legal custody refers to which parent(s) can make decisions on the child’s behalf. Parents can be granted joint custody – wherein they both share responsibilities – or sole custody.

Ideally, you and your partner will be able to negotiate amicably and come to a custody agreement together. Unfortunately, things are not always this easy – if you and your partner cannot agree on custody, a judge in family court will decide for you.

When determining child custody, the court will consider:

  • The child’s best interests
  • Any instances of abuse
  • The child’s age
  • The mental and physical well-being of both parents and the child
  • Each parent’s location and home environment
  • The child’s relationship with each parent
  • Each parent’s parenting skills

Termination of Parental Rights

Terminating a parent’s rights regarding his or her child is a big decision that should only be done if it is in the child’s best interest.

Once a parent’s rights have been terminated, he or she can no longer:

  • Have a relationship with the child
  • Raise the child
  • Visit or talk with the child
  • Pay child support (except for child support arrears)
  • Be named on the child’s birth certificate

Keep in mind that you are not allowed to terminate your own rights – unless you and the custodial parent are in agreement that your rights should be terminated. The process of terminating parental rights can be long and arduous but our Las Vegas child support attorney can help you navigate it step by step.
