Nevada Family Law

Full-service family law firm in Reno

Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption, experiencing the pain of marital conflict or facing another legal issue close to home, I listen to your needs, understand your concerns and help you reach solutions to your legal problems. The Law Offices of Gary L. Manson has served families in Reno for 36 years. I provide legal services across a wide spectrum of areas, including:

  • Adoption
  • Alimony
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Child support modification and enforcement
  • Divorce
  • Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
  • Probate


Adopting a child brings happiness to families, but when something goes wrong, there is a chance of substantial heartache. I assist families with the complex legal process of adoption, so you can feel secure about your child’s future well-being.


Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. I help you establish fair and equitable spousal support so you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.

Child custody and visitation

For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. I advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home.

Child support

Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. At the Law Offices of Gary L. Manson, I help ensure your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement

Child support payments remain the same unless the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, I can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.


Throughout your divorce, I stand by you. I accompany you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you — including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. I expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
