Joint Physical Custody

In Nevada, the standard custody arrangement is for parents to have joint physical custody. This has been defined by the courts as a 50/50 split, but can be as divergent as 60/40. If a parent is seeking primary custody, they must demonstrate a compelling reason, such as fault. This could include a parent failing to be a part of their child's life, abuse and neglect, or substance abuse.

For example, if a husband and wife have been separated for a considerable amount of time and the father has picked up their child every other weekend, the mother could seek primary custody based on the arrangement the children have become accustomed to.
