Calculation of Child Support Under the New Regulations

Our staff has 30+ years of experience with Family Courts and is responsible for the newly revise Statute.

As of February 1, 2020, the regulations set revised guidelines for calculation of a child support obligation. The calculation is presumed to meet the basic needs of a child, but the presumption may be rebutted by evidence.

The schedule for the base child support obligation is as follows:

Calculation of Child Support Under the New Regulations

  1. For one (1) child, the sum of:
    (a) Sixteen percent (16%) of the first $6,000 of the obligor’s monthly gross income;
    (b) Eight percent (8%) of monthly gross income over $6,000 but equal to or less than $10,000; and
    (c) Four percent (4%) of monthly gross income over $10,000.
  2. For two (2) children, the sum of:
    (a) Twenty-two percent (22%) of the first $6,000 of the obligor’s monthly gross income;
    (b) Eleven percent (11%) of monthly gross income over $6,000 but equal to or less than $10,000; and
    (c) Six percent (6%) of monthly gross income over $10,000.
  3. For three (3) children, the sum of:
    (a) Twenty-six percent (26%) of the first $6,000 of the obligor’s monthly gross income;
    (b) Thirteen percent (13%) of monthly gross income over $6,000 but equal to or less than $10,000; and
    (c) Six percent (6%) of monthly gross income over $10,000.
  4. For four (4) children, the sum of:
    (a) Twenty-eight percent (28%) of the first $6,000 of the obligor’s monthly gross income;
    (b) Fourteen percent (14%) of monthly gross income over $6,000 but equal to or less than $10,000; and
    (b) Seven percent (7%) of monthly gross income over $10,000.
  5. For each additional child, the sum of:
    (a) An additional two percent (2%) of the first $6,000 of the obligor’s monthly gross income;
    (b) An additional one percent (1%) of monthly gross income over $6,000 but equal to or less than $10,000; and
    (c) An additional one-half percent (0.5%) of monthly gross income over $10,000.

The regulations define gross income for these calculations in expansive detail, stating what is and is not included for determining child support under the guidelines. The rules also include other criteria for the court to follow in determining support.

Seeking Custody of a Child in Las Vegas?

There are lots of people who have never attempted to file for custody of a child in Las Vegas and many reasons why. Especially Fathers. Fatherless homes are an epidemic in the Las Vegas community that we are trying to change. There is no reason that you should not be in your child’s life whether the mother or father wants a relationship or not. Although it seems that the Family Courts in Las Vegas work for the best interest of the mother, it’s mostly because they are usually the person filing for custody or benefits.

Fatherless Home Epidemic!

According to The Fatherless Generation:

Statistics

  • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.
  • 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.
  • 85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average.  (Center for Disease Control)
  • 80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average.  (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)
  • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average.  (National Principals Association Report)

Time For Change!

It’s time to make some changes in our community. Call the Family Court Help Line when you are ready to seek more access, Co-parenting or joint custody of a child.
