The importance of properly preparing for child support matters
Among the things that will generally occur in a divorce case in which the divorcing individuals have minor children is that one of the two divorcing individuals will be ordered to pay child support. Here in Nevada, when a child support award is made through a decision by a court, the amount of the award will generally be dictated by the state’s child support guidelines.
The things Nevada courts generally take into account when applying the guidelines in a child support case include the income of the receiving parent, the income of the paying parent and how custody time is split between the two parents. The state’s child support guidelines are very complex and their application can be quite complicated.
The complicated nature of the guidelines can sometimes leave a divorcing parent feeling like they will never really be able to get their head around the child support issue, which could cause them to be tempted to not really prepare much for child support proceedings but rather just trust that everything will ultimately turn out okay.
However, proper preparation for child support proceedings is very important. Ignoring such preparations could cause all different sorts of unnecessary complications in a child support case.
