How is Child Support Is Determined in Nevada?
Like all states, Nevada determines child support through a set formula of income and expenses. Those numbers are plugged into the formula to generate a final amount. However, a child support arrangement is only as good as the data entered into the formula to determine it. People with unique circumstances – like business owners and self-employed professionals – will likely face certain challenges. What they make and what they report may differ.
NV's Tiered Income Scale for Child Support Payments
The percentages are based upon a tiered income scale. For example, in the case of primary physical custody for one child if the obligor’s GMI was $8,000 per month, the obligor would now pay 16% of the first $6,000 of GMI earned, which is calculated at $960 per month, and then pay 8% of the next $2,000, or $100, for a total monthly child support obligation of $1,060.
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.

Can Child Support be Modified?
In Nevada, child support can be modified once every three years or sooner. The modification request will only be granted if you can show a substantial change in circumstances, such as:
- A sudden job change or loss of work, impacting the paying spouse’s income
- A parent may increase his or her share of parenting time, which would reduce the amount of child support he or she owes
- The child's needs for health related expenses change substantially
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.
When Does Child Support End in Nevada?
Nevada lawmakers have included explicit language regarding when a child support order is to be terminated. The statute explicitly states that an order pertaining to the payment of child support shall terminate once the child reaches 18 years old or, if still in high school, the order ends upon the child graduating high school or turning 19 years old. If more than one child is included in a child support order and the oldest child reaches 18 years of age or graduates high school, then a motion to modify the order must be filed to adjust the total amount of support for the un-emancipated minor children still remaining under the order.
