Types of Custody

Nevada recognizes both physical custody and legal custody.

  • Physical custody refers to who the child lives with
  • Legal custody refers to which parent can make decisions about the child’s lifestyle and upbringing

Both physical and legal custody can be shared jointly or given solely to one parent. Arrangements can be made according to the family’s unique circumstances. For example, even if one parent has sole physical custody, both parents may share joint legal custody.

How Is Custody Determined?

If you and the other parent can agree on custody arrangements, you have the right to create your own custody order and parenting plan. These agreements are best reached through negotiation, mediation, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

If you cannot reach an agreement, a family court judge will intervene and establish custody for you. The judge has broad discretion but will always prioritize the child’s best interests.

Other factors that will affect a judge’s custody decisions include:

  • Each parent’s relationship with the child
  • Where each parent lives
  • The proximity of each parent’s home to the child’s school, doctors, etc.
  • Any history of domestic violence or child abuse
  • The child’s preference (if they are old enough)
  • Each parent’s mental and physical health
  • The child’s special needs, if any
