Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: I got divorced last year in NV. I received full physical custody of my children. We have lived in Yuma since May 2019, recently they went to visit her for spring break in NV. I am in the military and with the COVID-19 restrictions its hard for me to get them. who has jurisdiction over y children state wise? if she wanted to file for custody how would she do it?

Answer: Unless you have taken legal action to move custody (now called legal decision-making) away from Nevada to Arizona, Nevada will still have jurisdiction under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act.  Because you are in the military, you may be eligible for free legal help.  Go to: https://www.military.com/benefits/military-legal-matters/legal-assistance-and-jag/free-legal-assistance.html. This site has links to Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine legal assistance programs.  I know there are several military installations in Yuma, but I do not know which branch of service is yours.
