Child Custody

Generally, two types of child custody may be distinguished: legal and physical.

Legal custody determines who has the power to make the most important decisions concerning a child’s life (education, religion, travels, medical treatment, etc.)

Physical custody determines with whom the child lives, and, therefore, who is responsible for the everyday provision and care of a child. Physical custody also refers to the amount of time a child spends with each parent.

Nevada courts typically welcome the spouses’ desire to share the parental rights and liabilities, known as a joint custody order.

Joint physical custody means that both parents spend a significant amount of time (though, not necessarily equal periods of time) with their child regardless of whether the child resides exclusively with the one parent or has an alternate residency with the other.

It doesn’t matter if sole or joint custody is awarded, neither spouse is allowed to prevent the child’s communication with the other parent unless the court concludes that such contact may be harmful to the child.

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Nevada-based company. So that's why I used nevadaonlinedivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found nevadaonlinedivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
