Recent changes brought about in State Assembly Bill 263 (AB263) could mean big changes in the way child custody is handled in Nevada.
When you and your co-parent can no longer see eye-to-eye or even be amicable regarding child custody, you need a lawyer who's up to date on the newest state laws.
I've helped many clients get the child custody results they wanted since the introduction and implementation of AB263, a new Nevada state law governing specific aspects of child custody and visitation.
Perhaps you have a child custody court order in place that no longer works for your situation. The good news is you may be able to modify the child custody court order, however you will have to either get the consent of the other parent, or have a substantial change in circumstances such that a change of custody is in the child's best interests.
The following are examples of changes in custody:
-- joint physical custody to primary physical custody -- primary physical custody to joint physical custody -- sole legal custody to joint legal custody -- joint legal custody to sole legal custody
When seeking modification of custody, it is important to consult with or retain a family law attorney.
