North Las Vegas Child Support Attorneys
Ensuring Fair & Reasonable Support Orders
Child support is vital to a child’s well-being when their parents are divorced or were never married. A child’s parents are obligated to financially support their minor children even if they don’t have legal or physical custody of the child. It’s important that non-custodial parents are held accountable for paying child support in full and on time. That said, it’s equally important to ensure that child support awards are fair and reasonable. No parent should have to overpay.

With care and determination, we represent parents who are negotiating or litigating child support awards.

Calculating Child Support
The state of Nevada has guidelines used to calculate child support, but a family court judge still has the discretion to adjust the calculated support award as they see fit.
When awarding child support, judges will consider:
- Each parent’s income – including salary, tips, investments, etc. – and the total net income of both parents
- How much time the child spends with each parent
- Each parent’s education and earning potential
- Whether the child has any special needs
- The cost of childcare, daycare, etc.
- The cost of the child’s health insurance
- Any child support or alimony orders from previous relationships/marriages
- The child’s age
Once child support is ordered, it must be paid until the child turns 18 or graduates from high school. In some cases, support payments may continue past this time and into the child’s college years.
