shutterstock 138749717Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada provides free legal services to low income families and individuals in need of assistance. We offer legal classes, counsel & advice and direct representation with priority given to victims of domestic violence.  A custody case is a legal action filed by one parent to obtain custody of a child. Custody is also handled in a divorce case. However, when the parents are not married the court must address paternity, child custody, child support and visitation in a custody or paternity case. To apply for legal representation for a custody case, you must first attend the free Custody Class click HERE. In the class you will receive an intake packet and information how to apply.  Bring your intake packet to our office during walk in hours, Monday thru Friday from 9:00 am- 4:00 pm to meet with an intake advocate. You can also visit the Family Law Self-Help Center located inside family court or online HERE for court information and forms.  Staff at the Family Law Self Help Center cannot provide legal advice.
