Emergency Temporary Custody Order Attorney

In many child custody proceedings, whether through modification of custody or just establishing initial parentage and custody, there are emergencies where one parent can – and should – ask the court to grant them emergency custody of the child(ren). An emergency custody order is a temporary custody order that a parent may be able to obtain without a full hearing and even without the other parent present.

For a parent to have grounds to ask the court for an emergency custody order, they must prove that there are serious – usually dangerous – circumstances that call for an emergency change. If you’re afraid for your child’s safety, take immediate action with a Las Vegas and Henderson child custody lawyer.

Once the order is in place, our team can review the issues of your case piece by piece and help you find a more permanent solution that can protect the involved child on a longer-term basis.

When To File An Emergency Temporary Custody Order

A parent can seek an emergency temporary custody order when there are serious, urgent circumstances.
