Nevada is an alimony state. There is no formula to determine what is an appropriate alimony figure, rather the Nevada legislature as provided factors for the Court to consider in making an alimony determination. See NRS 125.150. These factors include length of marriage, relative income of the parties, quality of life during the marriage, assets taken by way of divorce, and so on.
The court assess these factors in deciding what is a fair alimony award, both in amount and duration.
