This is one of the most common questions that I get asked by parents in nearly every child custody case. They want to know if their children’s voices can be heard by the judge in regards to the preference of who the child wants to live with. What I tell parents is that in Nevada court cases dealing with children, the courts always look to what is in the best interest of the children, bottom line. However, a child’s best interest does not necessarily simply mean the child’s preference. Though their preference may be considered, a judge includes many factors.
