One of the most critical areas of concern for clients involved in family law cases is that of child custody, which also encompasses the complicated intricacies of the visitation process.

Therefore, legal family matters need to be attended to with a high level of caution and care, as the outcomes are often very difficult to reverse. From the beginning, you need a Reno family law attorney who understands the divorce, custody, and child support laws in Nevada, along with the legal rights that clients have available to them.

Child Custody & Visitation Legal Representation

At Carlson & Work, we understand that child custody matters may be one of the most disputed and contentious parts of the divorce process, as they involve the most important part of your life. Our Reno child custody lawyers take the role with the understanding that our actions can have an enormous impact on your life, and more importantly, the lives of your children. Nevada Family law courts will look at the two forms of custody, alongside the external factors in your life, to determine the best custody arraignment for your child or children. The two forms of child custody are legal custody and physical custody. In summary, the outcome of each will largely be decided upon review by the court, which will heavily factor in the best interests of the child as they relate to your child custody motions.
