Family law in Las Vegas consists of many topic areas that a Las Vegas family lawyer would need to be competent in. Divorce, Property Settlement, Alimony, Legal Separation, Child Custody, Child Support, Paternity, Domestic Violence, Relocation, Protection Orders, and Adoption to name a few.
Any one of those topic areas also implicates many more. For instance, if we only look at topics that involve children’s rights, then any of the following areas may be involved: Paternity, Child Support, Child Custody, Adoption, Immigration, Juvenile Justice, Inheritance, Property Rights, Trusts, Survivor Benefits, Schooling and Education, Parental Rights, Attractive Nuisance, Rights to Contract, Abuse, Neglect, Bullying, Guardianship, Foster Care, Sibling Visitation, Parent Visitation, Grandparent Visitation, Relocation, Cutting, Depression, Drug Use, Alcohol Use, Gangs, Graffiti, Vandalism, Homelessness, Emancipation, and Personal Injury.
In Las Vegas, attorneys must pass tests that span four days and must pass character and fitness. The tests cover the following topic areas: Agency and Partnership; Community Property; Conflict of Laws; Constitutional Law; Contracts; Corporations; Criminal Law and Procedure; Evidence; Persons and Domestic Relations; Real Property; Remedies; Torts; Uniform Commercial Code (Articles 2,3 and 9); Wills, Estates and Trusts; as well as pleadings and practices under both the Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Both fundamental legal principles and Nevada law are tested and may embrace more than a single subject.
In addition to all of the above, you will want to ask your family law attorney how many years of experience your lawyer has had as a lawyer in Las Vegas. This matters because the longer the attorney has been practicing, the more likely the attorney knows the Las Vegas judges and other lawyers involve in the case. The more the attorney knows, the better the potential legal analysis and strategy.
