Las Vegas Child Custody Laws

In Las Vegas, child custody is at the sole consideration the court, in custody determinations, is what is in the best interest of the child or children Although the court will consider the roles the parents played prior to the deterioration of the relationship, in most cases the courts are going to lean towards a joint custodial arrangement. If parties cannot reach an agreement, prior to any evidentiary hearing, the parties will have to attempt mediation. Parents will also need to attend “Children COPE” before the court can issue a custody order.
