WomensLaw is not just for women. We serve and support all survivors, no matter their sex or gender.
Important: Even if courts are closed, you can still file for a protection order and other emergency relief. See our FAQ on Courts and COVID-19.
Legal Information: Nevada
Can I change the state where the case is being heard?
Possibly. For information on trying to modify a final Nevada custody order in another state, or an out-of-state custody order in Nevada, go to our Changing a final custody order page in the general custody information to read what factors a judge will consider when deciding whether or not to transfer your case to a new state.
This is often complicated, and as with all custody issues, we recommend that you talk to a lawyer about this. To find legal resources in Nevada, go to our NV Finding a Lawyer page. To find legal resources in a state other than Nevada, go to our Finding a Lawyer page and select your state from the drop-down menu.
