I just signed up here.  I'm looking for help for convincing my wife that joint custody would be the best thing.  We have our last mediation next Friday, and I hope to do it there rather than in court.  

You are in Reno?  I am in Carson City.  Do you know who the best father's rights, pro-joint custody lawyer is in this area?  I have a great lawyer now, but she is a little weak on this subject, so if we do go to court, I may want a second attorney for back-up.

Hey, I'm a former Nevadan married to another former Nevadan (we now live in Arizona) who still has an custody issues with Nevada courts because the BM lives in Gardnerville. Right now we have my SD because the BM can't afford to keep her (i.e. pay for daycare, food, etc.) but she still makes us pay her child support.  We are hoping that if she is down her for 6 months (very likely) then we will file for a change of jurisdiction, but I think we have to get Nevada to release its jurisdiction in order to bring the case down here.

Nevadan here... From Las Vegas...

After 13 months have gone by in a very ugly divorce proceedings, my
boyfriend, has been accused by his soon to be ex wife of neglect.
The events leading up to this are as follows:

Maternal Grandparents arrive for transfer of the child and tell
Father, "Don't bathe her, don't touch her!" Father, not suprised but
very confused, just lets them rant and then leave. (All transfers
are held at a police substation to prevent further accusations of
harrassment.) Father goes home with Daughter and discovers a red
raised rash on the arms and chest of Daughter. Daughter is 3 and has
a history of eczema. Father changes Daughter's clothes and has a fun
evening with her. There is nothing about the rash that seems
alarming, Daughter is not in distress and does not show any other
symptoms. Saturday, Daughter has same rash, somewhat improved. Time
is spent at park and local play area at McDonalds. Daughter, again,
shows no signs of distress or other symptoms. Sunday, same thing.
Rash is same, no sign of symptoms. Daughter goes to church, has
lunch and has a normal day. A note is typed for Mother informing her
of the rash that she has, anything that was given to her, and a copy
of his insurance card in case she gets worse. Mother refuses note,
Maternal Grandmother refuses note. Mother does not recieve
information regarding rash. Father faxes note along with prior
history of this happening to Mother's attorney. No response
received. Transfer on Monday evening is made by Maternal
Grandfather. Daughters rash is now scaly and peeling. Again, she is
not in distress, and does not show any other symptoms. A wait and
see approach is taken. Tuesday morning transfer back to Mother.

Wednesday afternoon, a card is left on the door of Father by CPS.
Father calls CPS and is informed that the scheduled transfer of
Daughter will not take place that evening due to neglect of medical
care. CPS has no interest in hearing Father's statement. Thursday,
Father contacts CPS for name of Doctor or Clinic to retrieve records
for Daughter. Doctor refuses, stating Father is not legal guardian.
Father calls CPS again asking for copies of Doctors records. CPS
states that they have none, they only spoke to the doctor on the
phone. A hearing is set for the next day. Friday, at hearing, Mother
states that bleach was used on Daughter. Father peed on Daugher and
Father put "owwie soap" on Daugher. CPS interviewed Daughter on two
occasions between Tuesday and Friday and has affidavit from Mother.
Father is not allowed to speak at hearing. Father is not given any
record of complaint, nor a copy of the affidavit made by mother.
Judge rules that Father is to have SUPERVISED visitation for two
hours on Monday and Wednesday of following week at Maternal
Grandparents house since it is a "neutral location". Additional
hearing to be made on following Thursday. At the hearing and in
conversations with the CPS supervisor, it is found that Daughter was
taken to Doctor on Friday and on Tuesday. Nothing was said to Father
about these visits.

What can he do? He has no attorney and no funds to find one.
