What is the New Child Support Law in Nevada?
Under the new child support law in Nevada, the base child support responsibility depends on the number of children to be supported and the monthly gross income of the party responsible. Therefore, the parent will pay 16% of one child's first $6,000 monthly gross income.
How To Calculate Child Support in Nevada
Whether the parents are getting a divorce or the custodial parent is requesting child support, it is usually a contested matter. Especially in divorce cases, the party which has only minimal or no physical custody is resistant to paying large amounts of child support. Luckily, the law is on the side of the parent who is primarily caring for the child or children, and the results of such cases are often quite favorable. It is not uncommon for a parent who is working full-time and is financially stable, to have to pay hundreds of dollars of child support every month.
Can You Negotiate Child Support in Nevada?
The courts can modify and negotiate child support agreements for any reason since Nevada is a no-fault divorce state.
Depending on your time-share agreement or arrangement, a complex formula is used to calculate the amount of the child support, including the following:
- Your gross monthly income
- The gross monthly income of your ex-spouse
- The amount of time that the children are with each parent
- How many children are involved in the case
In Nevada, if you have a joint custody situation, the court will take the appropriate percentage of each parent’s gross monthly income, subtract them, and then the person who makes more pays the other parent that difference.
