The most vital question our divorce lawyer will need to determine is the level of conflict currently. After assessing the level of conflict there are several legal routes that a divorce lawyer can consider. At Carlson & Work, we understand that our Reno divorce clients each have a unique situation and background, we will spend the necessary time to ensure the right approach is used in your divorce.
Contested divorces occur when the parties cannot agree to all the terms of the divorce, division of assets, child custody, and child support. In a contested divorce, the most common area of disagreement is child support and child custody. These areas of the family are rightfully emotionally driven and are often the area of biggest disagreement. Nevada community property laws will govern the assets and division of property throughout the divorce. The best interest factors under NRS 125 will govern most aspects of the child custody and child support side of the divorce.
Joint Petition Divorce:
Joint Petition Divorces are most typically best for family law clients who can agree on all terms and who have a very low level of conflict when approaching their divorce. This method of divorce can be very cost-effective primarily because it limits the need for multiple attorneys to litigate and attend multiple family court hearings. The method is done together and can be filed as a joint document to the family law courts. The family law and divorce law authority for a joint petition divorce can be found under NRS 125.182. Parties to a joint petition divorce must make sure to agree to all terms of the joint petition divorce and must notify the court to the specifics of child custody should the couple have children.

Our child custody lawyers take the role with the understanding that our actions can have an enormous impact on your’s and your child’s life. Family law courts will look at the two forms of custody and the outlining factors in your life to determine the best custody arraignment for your child. The two forms of child custody are legal custody and physical custody, the outcome of each will largely be decided when the court reviews the best interests factors as they relate to your child and your child custody motions.
In Nevada, physical custody primarily relates to the physical living arraignment the family law court determines is best for your child. In the simplest terms, physical custody determines where and when your child is at any given time and which parent has the legal write to their child at any given time. If a family law judge orders that one parent occupies more than 60% of their child’s time, it will be determined that the parent holds primary physical custody of their child. Carlson & Work has successfully fought to obtain joint and primary custody for many of our family law clients.
In Nevada, legal custody refers to the right of either parent to make the most central and important decisions as they relate to your child’s life.
