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, including:

  • 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
