Types of Child Support Litigation in Nevada

The court’s ruling on child support will have a lasting effect on a child’s and both parent’s standard of living during a child’s minority. The state of Nevada has divided litigation over child support into the following categories: determining child support, modifications, and collections/enforcement.

Determining Child Support

The Nevada child support formula is fairly complicated and depends on several factors. In Nevada, child support is based on a parent’s gross income (prior to taxes). If a parent is self-employed, gross income is determined differently than if a parent is an employee. Additionally, Nevada has different child support formulas based on the type of physical custody held by the parents.

At a complimentary initial consultation, our firm can calculate child support based on the unique factors of your case. From there, we can help you better understand your legal rights and options.

Child Support Modifications

Next, child support can be modified throughout a child’s minority. In Nevada, child support can be reviewed any time based on a change of circumstances. At the earliest, the courts have the discretion to set a modification of child support back to the filing of a motion to modify child support. However, the court has no discretion to modify child support until a motion is filed.

If you believe you are not receiving enough or paying too much child support, please schedule a meeting with our office to learn whether seeking modification of child support would be beneficial.

Collections & Enforcement

Finally, the collection of child support can occur through various child support enforcement agencies or through the divorce or family law matter.

The court has the ability to collect child support arrears through a variety of methods including but not limited to:

  • Wage garnishment
  • Interception of tax returns

If you are not receiving court ordered child support, our firm can provide you various options for collections.
