Most Nevadans I know don’t know this, but state law specifically requires employers to allow employees to take time off to go vote. There are specific rules, of course, but everyone can take at least one hour to go vote if they can’t get to the polls before or after work. And the employer doesn’t get to dock their pay. That means you get paid time off to vote if you wouldn’t be able to vote otherwise.
Whenever parents of children divorce, Nevada law requires that they provide financial support for their children until they reach the age of 18 (or 19 years if they are still in high school). NRS 125B.020(1) is intended to be gender neutral and requires both parents to provide their children with their necessary financial means, health care, education and support.
Nevada law provides for two types of child custody: (1) Legal Custody and (2) Physical Custody. These aspects of custody work in tandem and describe a parent’s legal duties toward their children and the other parent. But because they are separate legal concepts, and because they offer different benefits and obligations to parents, they are worthy of discussing in some detail.
You’re filing for divorce. In some instances congratulations are in order, in others, not so much. No matter what the circumstances, there are some very important things you must do following your decision to end a marriage.
It is a sad fact that custody battles are frequently waged using stories that just aren’t true. Often, one parent blows small incidents into monumental complaints in order to gain some tactical advantage during the litigation.
