Legal Answers
53 Questions Answered
Q. HOW CAN MY GIRLFRIEND STOP HER MOM FROM KICKING HER OUT OF THE FAMILY HOME
A: I believe you might benefit from speaking to an estate planning attorney regarding this question.
Q. Can a judge legally order me to lock my son out of the house to force him to see his father?
A: In any Family Law situation involving children, Nevada judges will always first and foremost look to what is in the best interest of the children. For this reason, it follows that endangerment of a child would most certainly be a compelling reason for a judge to grant a modification of an existing custody arrangement. Endangerment can include any instance of the following by either the parent or any third-party that the parent exposes the child to: Physical abuse Sexual abuse Mental abuse Psychological abuse Drug or alcohol abuse Concerning behavior related to mental health issues If you feel that your child is in danger by any of these factors or any additional factors, please don’t hesitate to contact a family law attorney to get your child custody modification put in place to protect your child. To discuss the specifics of your situation in detail, contact our office to schedule a consultation. Our team can be reached at (702) 998-1188, info@ljlawlv.com, or by scheduling a consultation online.
Q. As a witness in family court, can I listen to other witnesses before I give my testimony. I want them to know I’m listen
A: It has been my experience, prior to COVID, that it was really up to the individual judges if they allowed the witnesses all in the courtroom at the same time. most of the time I found that it was one witness in the courtroom at one time. Since COVID, most appearances are virtual and processes are handling a bit differently. I would suggest calling the department and inquiring.
