Childs drawing about divorce and custody
Our goal at Steinberg Law Group is to take care of our clients and their families. We fight diligently and hard when representing parents in child custody proceedings. When a divorce includes custody or visitation questions, your custody attorney should give you guidance so you can establish a stable environment for your children and reduce the stress that divorce creates. Our child custody lawyers in Las Vegas at Steinberg will help you every step of the way to settle your child custody case peacefully.

If paternity needs to be proven, our divorce attorneys will efficiently guide fathers through the court’s paternity process.

In the State of Nevada, the presumption is for the parties to have joint legal custody. In Joint Legal Custody, both mom and dad have the right to be part of the decision-making process on important matters.  Our divorce attorneys or child custody attorneys will walk your through this process.

As your custodial mediator, we will help you work out a parenting plan that is in the best interests of your child. Whether you are married, divorced, in a domestic partnership or are an unmarried parent, will are on your side to protect and establish your parental rights.

Sole Legal Custody is very rare in Nevada and is considered only if one party has had absolutely no involvement with the child, is a serious felon, mentally impaired, or does not desire any legal custody rights.  The default in Nevada is for both parents to have joint legal custody.

A growing trend in Nevada is to give both parents joint physical custody of the child. Both parents basically have a similar amount of time with the child. However, it is possible that one parent could receive primary physical custody of the child, in which case that parent has a greater amount of time than the non-custodial parent.  Your divorce attorneys should understand this, and it is important for any parent to understand the differences between joint physical custody and one parent having primary physical custody.  Child Custody Attorney Brian Steinberg is very much aware of these differences and the implications they can have on each parent and the child.

A real drawing by a child experiencing divorce and custody battleIf there is no agreement to give one parent primary physical custody, then a hearing in court is required in order to determine what custodial arrangement is in the best interest of the child.

Child custody law cases require that both parents attend a Court-mandated class, “Coping with Divorce” prior to the divorce becoming final. Allocation of tax deductions, timeshare/visitation schedules and parenting plan details must also be resolved. If both parents cannot agree to any or all of these items, then the Court will decide these issues.

There is no single structure for parenting and custody that works for all families.  Brian Steinberg and the Steinberg Law Group have over 15 years of experience working with families to design creative solutions to child custody law matters through litigation or custody mediation.  We can help you find a solution that is in the best interest of your children.  Schedule a consultation today with one of our child custody lawyers.
