Can I change the state where the case is being heard?

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 general Changing a final custody order page. There you can read what factors a judge will typically 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 it.  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.
