Henderson Spousal Support & Alimony Lawyer

Spousal support, also referred to as alimony, is often the most difficult issue to resolve in a divorce action and will require the assistance of an attorney. Under Nevada law, either spouse may be entitled to spousal support depending upon their financial circumstances. In some cases, one spouse has a steady career is responsible for earning the majority of the family’s income while the other spouse has either put his/her career on hold to care for children and/or the household, and as such, has become financial dependent on the other. Where there is a significant disparity in the earning potential of one spouse from the other, alimony may become an issue in the case. Alimony is typically a monthly payment from one spouse to the other to help pay household living expenses and otherwise support a person after a divorce or separation.

Unlike child support, there is no formula in Nevada for calculating alimony. The amount and duration of an alimony award lies entirely within the discretion of the trial court judge. There are a number of factors that will help predict the amount and duration of alimony to be paid, including: (a) The length of the marriage, (b) the relative incomes of both parties, (c) the age, health, and education of the parties, (d) the standard of living enjoyed by the parties during the marriage, (e) whether the dependent spouse stayed at home to care for children, (f) the amount of assets otherwise being received in the divorce, etc.

Because there is no mathematical alimony formula in Nevada, the amount of alimony awarded in each case can be extremely difficult to predict. However, Mr. Gordon has 18 years of experience handling alimony cases. Mr. Gordon can draw upon his extensive knowledge of prior reported case decisions, informal formulas, and other tools to help predict a range of possible results.

It is always recommended that you seek the assistance of a qualified attorney to help you understand how alimony is calculated in Nevada. If you want to have an experienced attorney help you through this process, please contact Mr. Gordon to schedule a consultation.
