How a Las Vegas Family Law Attorney Can Help

When parents are not present or are not fit to care for their children, a grandparent, aunt, uncle or other close family member may seek guardianship in order to provide for the children in their time of need. Reasons to being legal guardianship proceedings include, but are not limited to:

  • Child abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug or alcohol abuse
  • Incarceration
  • Death of one or both parents

Seeking guardianship in Las Vegas? Contact our firm!

Guardianship is a legal process wherein a party other than the parent of a minor child seeks custody of said child. Although the guardian will have legal and physical custody of the child, this does not necessarily terminate the parent's obligation to pay child support to help with the child's care.

Our law firm represents family members and others in issues related to guardianship. You may be seeking guardianship of your grandchild, niece, nephew or even a minor sibling if you are over the age of 18. You may be close to the child, although not related by blood, and may wish to seek guardianship to care for a child when the parents cannot. Regardless of the circumstances regarding your guardianship case, an attorney at our offices can help. We represent those seeking guardianship and can also assist custodial parents in challenging frivolous or unjustified guardianship cases.
