Child support in Nevada is based upon three things:
- The custodial arrangement
- The parties gross monthly income
- Number of children
If the parties share joint physical custody, then child support is based upon a percentage of both parties’ gross monthly income. Whomever makes more pays the difference. The percentage is determined by the number of children (18%-1 child, 25%-two children, and increases from there).
If one parent has primary physical custody, the non-custodial parent pays child support based upon the percentage of their gross monthly income determined by the number of children.
See NRS Chapter 125B for the statutes on Nevada child support.
Note all child support amounts are subject to the statutory cap, which is updated each July 1. Here is the link to the statutory cap information.
