Dads have the same opportunity ot obtain custody of children as moms.



True. The old days of courts favoring mothers when awarding custody are over. The “Tender Years Doctrine,” which is the misguided belief that dads lack the ability to properly care for young children, has been eliminated in Nevada. Nevada courts are expressly forbidden to consider a parent’s gender when make custody decisions.


The law assumes that moms and dads are equally able to love, nurture and attend to their children. When making custody awards, a court may consider just about anything that it deems appropriate: but the gender of a parent is intentionally NOT on that list. Whether you are a mom or a dad, having an experienced family law attorney on your team is essential to a fair outcome.

My medical bills will not go away in bankruptcy.


Answer: False. Medical bills are dischargeable in bankruptcy with respect to those medical bills that have been incurred prior to the filing of the bankruptcy case. As a result, in some cases debtors wait to file a bankruptcy to make sure that their medical problems have been addressed and resolved.

If you have been drinking and driving and are arrested for DUI, you may as well plead guilty and get it over with.


False. While you should never drink and drive, just because you drank does not mean that you should or will be convicted of DUI. Prosecutors cannot plea bargain DUI cases if they believe that they can prove the crime. It is a defense attorney’s task to evaluate the specific facts related to your arrest. Law enforcement must play by the rules, and must observe the laws related to: 1) stopping you in the first place; 2) implementing roadside and other testing procedures; 3) obtaining a warrant to withdraw your blood under certain circumstances; 4) time limits related to taking evidentiary samples; and 5) many other things.


An experienced attorney may see problems with the Prosecutor’s case and convince him or her that they have room to plea bargain. This could lead to a favorable resolution, including dismissal. If you plead guilty, the case is done and you waive your right to contest any of these issues: avoid the temptation! Do yourself a favor and have an experienced attorney review your case before deciding what is best for you.
