Do the standard Rules of Evidence and Rules of Civil Procedure apply in a motion hearing to dissolve a Temporary Protection Order or are these hearings that take place in Eighth Judicial District Family Court for a TPO for Domestic Violence guided by a different set of rules?
The rules generally apply, though there are different legal standards that apply. The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) cover most of those standard in Section 33. (https://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-033.html) You will also find some procedural rules in the Eighth District Court Rules (EDCR) Section 5. And case law gives the Hearing Masters some additional guidance. If you have a particular question, feel free to reach out to an experienced family law attorney.
