As a Las Vegas child custody lawyer, Soraya is familiar with this area of law. Nevada is a state which presumes joint custody. This means that the Judge will start off the case with a belief that each parent should have joint custody, which Nevada defines as each parent having at least forty percent of the child’s time. The Court will award a parent primary custody if it is in the children’s best interests. In determining what is in the children’s best interests, the Court will consider things such as:
The history of the relationship between the children and each parent
Whether the children have siblings from a parent’s prior relationship
The level of conflict between the parents and which parent is responsible for the conflict
The ability of each parent to meet the needs of the children
The willingness of each parent to maintain a relationship between the child and the other parent
Whether there is a history of domestic violence between the parents
Soraya will gather all the necessary facts for your case so you can present the best case possible to the Court. Child custody matters often raise related issues such as child support, child relocation, paternity, and divorce. Regardless of the situation, Soraya has the experience to help.

This allows you to rest assured that your lawyer will be handling your case instead of an associate or paralegal. You will be kept up to date in regards to the progress of your case as Soraya conducts regular meetings and teleconferences with her clients to keep them informed. Many attorneys in southern Nevada do not provide this same level of effective representation.
