Nevada laws on alimony are very subjective. That is, in evaluating alimony, the courts look at each case differently. The courts have discretion on whether or not to award spousal support. When they do, they also have the power to determine the amount and duration. Judges may take into account a range of factors when making their decisions, including the age of the parties, length of the marriage, job history, education and ability to earn an income.
Whether you are petitioning to receive alimony or are fighting against paying it, there are smart choices you can make when presenting your arguments. In order to best represent your position, however, it is vital to retain a qualified family law attorney.
