What is the Most Common Custody Arrangement in Nevada?
Joint Custody is an arrangement where both parents equally share time with the children, and they are both able to make major decisions for the child together with fairly equal time between both parents and the children.
Usually, this entails reaching an agreement when it comes to the child’s education, medical care, treatment, and even religious upbringing. It includes both legal custody and physical custody. The judges look to different things when deciding custody matters but primarily they look at what is in the best interest of the child.
The judges start looking at what is best for the parents but what is in the best interest of the child. And in Nevada, we have an assumption that the best interest of the children or the child is best served by the children or the child has equal access and time to both parents.
So that is the presumption with which all family courts here in Nevada start. The children’s best interest is met when they have access and the parents share Joint Custody.
Deviations from that occur when for example, one of the parents is found to be unfit because of or neglect, there are different reasons why a parent might not be well suited to have and share joint custody of the child.
