Child Support -- How Much is the Right Amount in Nevada
All parents have a legal obligation to provide financial support for their minor children. When parents divorce or separate, child support arrangements and orders must be determined either by agreement of the parties, or by the Court. Nevada has adopted statutory based child support guidelines to enable parties and judges to uniformly calculate child support in most cases. While courts have some discretion in setting the amount of support, the statutory framework, is always the Court's starting point when determining child support.
Once established, child support can be modified at any time based upon a change in circumstances. Child support orders in Nevada should also be reviewed every 3 years.
As part of any child support order, the Court will address which parent is to provide health insurance for the minor child, as well as allocate between the parents the cost of any uncovered medical expenses.
