“Sean is an excellent, caring, and honest attorney”
In Nevada, the parent ordered to pay child support must pay a certain percentage of their gross monthly income to the other parent. The monthly minimum child support payment in our state is $100.
When determining child support payments, the judge will consider:
- The number of children shared
- Each parent’s financial situation
- Each parent’s current income and future earning capacity
- The children’s medical and educational needs
- The age of the child or children
- The children’s standard of living
Our Las Vegas child support attorney is ready to hear your story and help you navigate these difficult negotiations. We keep your children’s best interests in mind every step of the way while protecting your rights and seeking a favorable resolution.
Modifying an Existing Order
In life, things change fast. If new circumstances have affected your ability to pay child support, we can help you make modifications to a previous child support order.
You may be able to request changes if you:
- Lost a job
- Moved to a new place
- Made changes to child custody arrangements
- Have been abiding by the same order for at least three years
Our family law team can also assist you if you would like to modify an order to receive more support. If your ex-spouse makes more money at a new job or you are experiencing financial difficulties, you can request that your former spouse makes larger child support payments. We are ready to help you build a strong case for your request.
