Las Vegas Alimony Attorney

Resolving Spousal Support Matters in Nevada

Alimony, also known as spousal support or spousal maintenance, is a type of financial support that one spouse pays to the other spouse during and/or after a divorce so that the spouse who receives alimony can maintain a reasonable standard of living. Contrary to popular belief, any spouse can give or receive alimony. A judge's order for alimony will be based on the proven need of one spouse to receive support and the other spouse's ability to pay support.

If you are in need of spousal maintenance or have been asked to pay spousal support to a former spouse, speak with an experienced Las Vegas alimony lawyer from our firm. We can listen to your story carefully to make certain that all parties benefit from the resolution to your divorce-related matter.

Protect Your Assets During Divorce

You might be wondering if Nevada is an alimony state. Nevada recognizes two types of alimony. Our experienced Las Vegas alimony attorney can be of assistance with any alimony case. If your alimony can be determined and mutually agreed upon outside of court, we can also provide effective mediation services to you and a former spouse.

We can walk you through discussing terms of:

  • Temporary maintenance
  • General alimony
  • Rehabilitative alimony

    Alimony can be paid on a temporary basis or a permanent basis. You might also be wondering how alimony is calculated in Nevada. The state does not have a specific amount or formula for calculating what should be paid. Instead, the courts will determine alimony based on what is fair or equitable for both parties.

    What Factors Are Used to Calculate Alimony in Nevada?

    When deciding whether to award alimony and in what amount, Nevada's alimony statutes require that courts consider many factors.

    To determine fair alimony, the courts will consider the following:

    • The length of marriage
    • The supported spouse's pre-marriage career
    • The supported spouse's education, training, or skill level
    • Any other awards granted by the court, other than child support
    • The physical and mental condition of both spouses, as it relates to the ability to work
    • The financial standing of each spouse, including income, standard of living, and owned property
