Experienced child relocation attorney in Las Vegas
How Nevada handles a child relocation case varies depending on your current child custody arrangement. The Court has two different legal tests for a parent wishing to move. One test will be used by the Court if a parent relocating already has primary physical custody of the child and a second test will be used if the parents currently have joint child custody. If one parent has primary custody and wishes to relocate than the Court will apply what is known as the Schwartz test which, for the most part, bases a relocation on the suitability of the parent wishing to move. If the parents have joint custody, on the other hand, the Court will apply the Potter test which considers the suitability of both parents equally. Generally it will be easier for a parent to relocate if he or she currently has primary custody of the child.
