Overview of Fathers' Rights in Nevada
Many fathers are overlooked in a divorce case and the court can often side
with mothers in matters of child custody, spousal support and more. This
is a habit that was formed when the mother was more often times the dependent
one that had formed the bonds with the children. Today, families come
in all varieties and more and more fathers are remaining home or can be
dependent on their spouse.
Fathers’ rights are important for those that are looking to gain
custody of their children or want to be granted visiting rights with them.

Family Lawyer Protecting Fathers' Rights in Las Vegas
Child custody is typically the most prevalent fathers' rights issue
in a Las Vegas divorce. The courts rule on what is in the best interests
of the child, preferring to award joint custody whenever possible. In
the presence of
domestic violence, drug or alcohol abuse or child abuse, however, the tables may turn and
one parent may be awarded sole custody with the other awarded supervised
or unsupervised visitation. To make sure your legal rights are properly
protected, you need an attorney who can make an accurate assessment of
what you are up against and what needs to be done to seek a fair result.
