The Nevada Child Support Guidelines are drawn based on the varying percentage of income model.
- The child support amount is determined by clubbing the income of both parents.
- A specified percentage is applied to the combined incomes of the parents depending on the number of children or dependents.
- The percentage applied increases in proportion to the rise in income of either of the parents.
- There are fixed slabs of income of the parents based on which presumptive child support amount is also determined by the court.
- Further, as per court rule, the child support amount in every case should be a minimum of $100.
