Protect Your Family & Finances with Help from Leavitt Law Firm
Under Nevada's Revised Statutes, parents of a child have the obligation
and duty to provide necessary maintenance, healthcare, education, and
support to a child. When parents do not reside together, the parent with
physical custody of the child may receive child support for a reasonable
portion of the cost of care, education, and maintenance from the non-custodial parent.
When calculating child support, payments can be based on many factors,
- The age of the child
- The income of both parents
- The legal responsibility of the parents to the child
- The amount of time the child spends with each parent
- The cost of child care, healthcare, insurance, and education
- Any other necessary expenses for the benefit of the child, including transportation
or extracurricular activities
