Las Vegas Child Support Attorney
Child support is monetary support paid by a parent to assist with the upbringing and expenses related to their child. When two parents are married, it is assumed that both parents are contributing to the support of their children. However, when parents are unmarried or divorced, child support may be calculated to ensure that the child’s needs continue to be met long-term. Based on your unique situation, you may be eligible to receive support payments for your child or may be ordered to pay them. Our dedicated and experienced child support lawyers can assist you with understanding what your child support obligation may be, or what you can expect to receive.
How Child Support is Calculated in Nevada
Each state has specific guidelines for how they determine child support. Nevada has standardized guidelines for awarding child support, based on specific factors relating to the parents and their situation. The final, binding decision made by the courts will take those factors into consideration along with their main goal of acting in the best interests of the child or children that are impacted.
Nevada Child Support award factors include:
- The income of each parent
- How many children they share
- The amount of time children spend with each parent
In addition to determining who receives the support payments, there are also guidelines in place for determining the amount of the child support award, based on the income of the parent who is responsible for paying. For one child, it is 18% of your gross monthly income, 25% for two children, and so on. Additional factors, such as special medical or educational needs of the child, can also impact your support obligation or payment.
