Alimony in Nevada
In Nevada, there is no commonly accepted formula for calculating alimony. If we handle your divorce case, our Las Vegas alimony attorney will assess your particular circumstances to determine whether alimony should be sought or paid, in what amount, and for how long.
Though alimony is not ordered in every case, it is more likely to be ordered if you relied on your spouse for financial support (or vice-versa). It is also commonly ordered when one spouse was a stay-at-home parent and needs an income while they reenter the job market.
When determining alimony payments, a judge will consider:
- The financial needs of the partner seeking alimony
- The payor’s financial situation and his/her ability to pay
- The couple’s lifestyle during the marriage
- Each party’s current income
- Each partner’s earning capacity and education level
- The length of the marriage
