Divorce With Children

SPOUSAL SUPPORT & ALIMONY

Despite what many say, Spousal Support and Alimony are always a consideration and potential outcome in any divorce in Nevada. In Nevada, Spousal Support and Alimony can have a massive impact on your long-term financial health, retirement and earnings capacity. You need an experienced attorney who fully understands the law and how to best position your case.

Spousal Support

Spousal Support is financial support that is awarded by a court during the marriage. Typically, Spousal Support payments are awarded during the divorce proceedings. The court’s goal is often to make sure both parties are on equal footing financially during the divorce. These payments are not long term and will stop at the end of the divorce proceedings.

Alimony

Alimony is financial support that is awarded by a court after the divorce is finalized. There are several factors a judge will consider when awarding alimony. These factors include: the difference income between the spouses, length of the marriage, the education and employability of either spouse, and whether one spouse has a health condition that makes income earning difficult.

The impacts of a Nevada divorce can be life-changing and lifelong. If anything, don’t leave the outcome to chance. You need a trusted divorce attorney by your side. Call us today, we will consider and review all legal options available to best position your case.

FACTORS DETERMINED BY THE COURT

When parties with children divorce, the Court will determine child support upon confirming the child custody and visitation schedule.  Carlson & Work represents parties divorcing with children and assists with determining sole and community property as well as arguing the best interests of the children under Nevada law.

NRSc.0035 states that the family court should consider the following when addressing the best interest of the child:

  • the child’s ability to maintain contact with siblings
  • the mental and physical health of both parents
  • the child’s physical and emotional needs
  • any history of abuse
  • the child’s wishes, if the child is of sufficient age and intelligence to decide
  • the child’s relationship with each parent
  • the level of conflict between the parents
  • whether either parent has committed an act of abduction against the child or any other child
  • each parent’s willingness to encourage a relationship between the child and the co-parent
