Henderson Child Support Lawyers
Focused on Your Family
Child support is a court-ordered payment from a non-custodial parent to a custodial parent. The intention of child support is to ensure that each parent is meeting their obligation to financially support the child they have together. Child support payments go toward the cost of raising the child, including housing, food, clothing, education, medical expenses, and more.
At The Hill Law Group, we understand that child support is vital to the well-being of children whose parents are separated. Our goal is to ensure that child support orders are fair to our clients and to their children. Whether you are seeking child support being asked to pay it, allow our Henderson child support lawyers to step in and represent your best interests throughout the process.

How Is Child Support Calculated?
Nevada has established guidelines for calculating child support, but judges have the discretion to adjust payments as they see fit.
Generally, judges consider the following factors when determining a child support award:
- Each parent’s total income, and the net income of both parents
- The established custody arrangements and how much time the child spends with each parent
- The cost of living and raising a child where each parent lives
- The child’s special needs, if any
- Healthcare and childcare costs
- Each parent’s earning potential
- Child support or alimony payments from a previous marriage
- The age of the child(ren)
In most cases, child support must be paid until the child turns 18 or graduates from high school. Payments may continue past 18 or into the child’s college years depending on the circumstances.
