Divorce overview

Spousal Support is a court order for one spouse to continue providing support during and/or after the divorce. The purpose of Spousal Support is to help the lower income party with finances separate from child support.

How is Spousal Support determined?

Spousal Support is determined by the court and depends on both parties’ income and the lower party’s need. Eligibility for Spousal Support in Nevada is based on the potential receiving spouse’s ability to earn an income, age and health, and their education/training/skills. Also factors like the length of the marriage, standard of living during the marriage, and contribution of either spouse as homemaker, can affect the final decision regarding Alimony . A judge usually only gives spousal support when one party has relied on the other financially for the majority for a long-term marriage.
