Ordinarily the minimum amount of child support per child per month in Nevada is $100; the maximum amount per child per month is capped depending upon the income level of the paying party.
In addition to setting a cap for child support, the Nevada Legislature has mandated a general formula for the base amount that applies in most cases. The formula uses a percentage of the paying party's gross monthly income, which increases on a sliding scale according to the number of children being supported by that party. In addition to this base formula, several factors may be used to deviate upward or downward from the base amount, such as timeshare with the child, an obligation to support a child not of the same relationship, certain special needs of the child, and other factors.
To modify a Nevada child-support order, a party has a right to ask the court to review the order after three years or sooner if there has been a material change in circumstances.
