Nevada Child Support Arrears Lawyer
When parents divorce, it is crucial to make sure that their children receive the financial support they need. While Nevada has a very specific formula for determining child support payments, it is important to make sure that accurate information is being used to ensure that child support plans reflect the reality facing children and parents.
The Law Offices of Frank J. Toti represents clients in Las Vegas and throughout Clark County, handling all child support related issues, including child support arrears and child support enforcement. With more than 18 years of experience, you can rely on attorney Frank J. Toti to protect your rights.
Determining Child Support
The formula for child support is based on gross monthly income and goes up in percentage based on the number of children. If there is joint physical custody, both parents pay based on the amount of custody they have, making up any differences through child support payments.
There are also a number of factors that can be considered by the courts if a parent is seeking to deviate from the state child support guidelines.
Child Support Arrears
There are no time limitations for collecting child support. An existing order is the same as a judgment regardless of how long it has been since you have tried to collect the child support you are owed. In situations where parties are physically separated and there was never a child support order, the courts have discretion to award back child support for up to four years from the filling of the action.
