Child Custody and Relocation in Nevada Custody Basics in Nevada

A custody order will define visitation schedules, child support, transportation arrangements, and which parent has legal and physical custody of a child. Legal custody involves a parent’s right to make major decisions on a child’s behalf. Physical custody is where a child lives. One parent can have sole physical and legal custody, or parents can split physical and/or legal custody under a joint custody arrangement. Even if parents share joint physical and legal custody, a court will appoint a custodial parent. The custodial parent has the final say when the parents can’t agree on something involving their child.

Judges consider several factors in determining the arrangement that will meets a child’s best interests, including:

  • the child’s relationship with each parent
  • the child’s ties to extended family and siblings
  • each parent’s physical and emotional well-being
  • the parents’ ability to work together in a co-parenting relationship
  • each parent’s ability to meet the child’s emotional and physical needs
  • each parent’s financial stability
  • each parent’s willingness to foster a relationship between the child and other parent
  • any history of domestic violence, and any other factor relevant to the child’s best interests
