Legal Question in Family Law in Nevada

conflict information

I am in a custody battle with my ex. His attorney lives right next door to me. He moved in after the case started. Is this conflict of interest? Also The attorney isasking my son questions when he is at my house and is playing outside. About if he's getting in trouble and if everything is okay over here and if there is anything wrong.

I don't think it qualifies as a conflict of interest, but the contact with the child is inappropriate. WRITE A LETTER and advise the attorney to stop speaking directly to the child.

Re: conflict information

Your ex-husband's attorney living next door to you would not qualify as a conflict of interest in his representing in the divorce.

However, the attorney MAY NOT contact your child while in your custodial care without properly notifying you or your attorney.

If you do not have representation in your divorce, I would highly recommend you at least consult with an attorney to evaulate your matter.

If you intend to proceed without legal counsel I would advise you write a formal letter to your ex-husband and his attorney requesting that such contact with your child cease.

If you would like to meet with an attorney in my office contact me and we can schedule a consultation.

Best Regards,

Re: conflict information

Moving next door to you isn't a conflict but talking to your son is completely out of line.
