Getting to the Facts to Determine Child Support
Nevada, like all states, determines child support through a set formula of income and expenses. Those numbers are entered into the formula, generating a final amount. However, a child support arrangement is only as good as the data entered into the formula to determine it. Challenges exist with business owners and self-employed professionals. What they make and what they report may differ.
At Law Practice, Ltd., we work with financial and accounting experts to ensure that income and expense data are accurate. Joint custody of a child can lessen the amount of support. However, it is not appropriate for a parent to seek additional time with a child only to save a few dollars on support. We will help you understand your options, advise you on your rights and help you pursue a child support arrangement that is in the best interests of your child.
Helping You With Support Modifications and Enforcement of Child Support
Jobs can change or end suddenly, impacting the income of a paying spouse. A parent may increase his or her share of a parenting time, reducing the amount of child support he or she owes.
In Nevada, child support can be modified once every three years or sooner, upon a showing of a substantial change in circumstances. If you experience a change in your situation, we can help you seek a modification to lessen your financial obligation or oppose a request for modification. We can also pursue action in court against a nonpaying spouse.
