How do I get alimony?
One must generally be proactive to get alimony. Unlike custody or the division of property, it is not likely the court will just “ask” about alimony. In other words, one must bring up the issue and pursue it assertively. Nevada law does allow for an ex-spouse to continue to be supported by the other spouse after divorce. This is called alimony or spousal support. Either husband or wife can be required to financially support the other, depending upon the financial circumstances surrounding the divorce.
The amount of maintenance is based upon several different factors, including: duration of the marriage, financial resources of each person, physical and emotional condition of each spouse, age, and standard of living during the marriage. Because the estimation of these issues are so discretionary, it takes a skillful lawyer to make good arguments to get you the most alimony.
