Creating Fair Agreements for the Children’s Best Interests

A parent’s responsibility to their child does not end upon divorce. Nevada law requires parents to continue supporting their child for as long as necessary so they can continue to maintain the standard of living they had before the separation. Child support payments are taken from a percentage of a parent’s monthly income before taxes.

The Reno child support lawyers at Law Offices of Kelli Anne Viloria, PLLC have significant experience in these matters. We know how to uncover details that affect child support and ensure a fair arrangement is created that protects the best interests of the child. We can also help you file for a modification of an existing arrangement if you feel circumstances have changed.

Reach out to our capable legal team today by calling (775) 476-5642.

How is Child Support Determined?

Child support is determined by a set of guidelines that take into account the number of children, the income of each parent, and any special needs of the children. These calculations are usually fairly straightforward, but there are some circumstances that can make the process more complex.

Extenuating circumstances in child support cases may include:

  • A parent is self-employed or under-employed
  • A parent is hiding income
  • The custodial parent’s financial need
  • A parent’s health insurance plan
  • Private schooling
  • A parent’s financial situation significantly changes

In Nevada, child support ends when a child reaches 18 or until they graduate high school if they are under 19. If you want to change an existing child support arrangement, you will either have to work out an agreement with the other parent or prove to a court that a change in circumstances concerning you, the other parent, or the child justifies an amendment to the arrangement.
