Protecting you, protecting your child

Clark County has a family law self-help website which dispenses some basic, very useful information. It tells you about child support information classes, and it tells you the maximum and minimum amounts of child support a divorcing parent can expect to receive in Nevada.

Perhaps the best information from Clark County can be found in its website disclaimer: “Some rights cannot be adequately protected without the assistance of an attorney. You should consult with an attorney before you file any document.”

We absolutely agree. Family law is often complicated by emotion and by the legalese of the statutes. The law is simply not always easy for the layperson to decipher and understand. Divorce is a critical moment in life, especially for parents. The documents you sign today in a divorce agreement will affect you and your child for years to come, so it makes sense to have a pair of family law attorney eyes go over those documents, at the very least.

Even better, have the attorney help you negotiate the terms, so that you can be assured that negotiations are focused on favorable results for you and that, most of all, the best interests of your child will be protected.

You want to know in any child support agreement who will be paying for health insurance, for instance, and what the cost of child care is and how it will be covered. You’ll also want to know the value of any services you provide, as well as the amount of time the child will spend with each parent. And on and on. There are many crucial details to be worked out with the help of an experienced, knowledgeable Las Vegas family attorney.
