Rule 5.07. Seminar for separating parents.

  • (a) All parties in all domestic relations actions under Chapters 125, 125A, and 126 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, where the interests of a child under the age of 18 years are involved, shall successfully complete the seminar for separating parents approved by the family division of the court.

    (b) The seminar shall be successfully completed within 45 days of service of the initial complaint or petition upon the defendant.

    (c) No action shall proceed to final hearing or order until there has been compliance with this rule; provided, however, that non-compliance by a parent who enters no appearance shall not delay the final hearing. The trial judge hearing the matter may take other appropriate action to compel attendance, including but not limited to action for contempt.

    (d) For good cause shown, the assigned trial judge may waive the requirement of completion of this program in individual cases.
