Alimony is the support allowance paid by a spouse to the other to prevent the sudden collapse in the standards of living.

Award

It is awarded irrespective of the gender. In Nevada alimony law, alimony is awarded at the discretion of judges hearing the proceedings of the divorce.

Alimony awarded generally varies from every case and so is offered on a case-to-case basis.

But the family courts in Nevada consider the following to calculate alimony.

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Lower earning spouse’s education
  • Disability status if any
  • Age and health
  • Income and the earning potentials
