Nevada Child Support

Nevada child support is based upon guidelines that are presumed to be correct unless there is a showing that the needs of the child would not be met. In deviating from the guidelines, a Nevada Court may consider the following factors in calculating child support:
  • the cost of health insurance;

  • the cost of child care;

  • any special educational needs of the child; 

  • the age of the child; 

  • the responsibility of the parents for the support of others; 

  • the value of services contributed by the parents; 

  • any public aid paid to the child; 

  • any pregnancy expenses; 

  • any visitation travel expenses;

  • the amount of time the child spends with each parent; 

  • the relative income of each parent; and (12) any other necessary expenses.
