How to get a TPO for child custody ?
1 attorney answer
You cannot get a TPO for child custody. You can only get a TPO if there has been a recent act of domestic violence as defined in NRS 33 and there is a credible likelihood of recurring violence such that the applicant requires protection. Custody may be temporarily addressed as part of a TPO, but it is not the basis for getting a TPO. If you believe you qualify for a TPO, you can find information and forms on the court's website (www.washoecourts.com) or through Safe Embrace. I am unsure about the other part of your question. If a motion has been filed and set for a hearing, the court's order setting the hearing will tell you what the court will be considering and ruling on. If you have divorce or custody litigation pending, you need to consult with an attorney to review your documents and provide advice.
