Re: hauge vrs hauge

Since your zipcode puts you in Clark County, I presume you were divorced in Clark County so that it where you would file. If you were divorced in another County, you would have to file in that County.

You raise an interesting issue that I have never litigated in 14 years of family practice and one year working for a family court judge. I would rather have a spouse move to Southern California than from Henderson to Reno.

However, the parent does not need court permission to move from Green Valley to Northern Nevada but is required for Southern California, which is closer.

The Court would probably re-do the visitation schedule just as if the parent moved out of state, but the Court cannot stop the move.
