Premarital and Postmarital Agreements

The purpose of Premarital or Postmarital agreements is to allow couples to decide for themselves how their property will be divided in the event of a divorce or upon the death of one of the spouses. Premarital agreements, also known as “prenups,” are actually quite common in Nevada.

Couples and their attorneys must take steps to ensure Premarital and Postmarital agreements are fair and enforceable. While most people do not want to think about divorce as they plan for their weddings, it has become vital for many Nevada couples to consider prenuptial agreements before saying their “I do’s.”

Child Support

Child support is intended to meet the needs of children. The courts will attempt to minimize the impact and disruption to the children due to a divorce. One way they do this is by ordering one of the parents to pay child support.

Divorces are displeasing, but arguably a necessary step that some couples decide is necessary. Even if the couple is better off with a divorce, many times the couple’s children are usually not. Eliminating any emotional harm to the children caught in the middle of a divorce is a noble but rarely achieved goal.

In most cases, child support is calculated by a formula that takes into account the physical custodial arrangement between parents, gross monthly income and the number of children involved. Child support payments are for the purposes of raising a child. Child support covers the money needed to clothe, feed and house the child. Other needs of the child that are to be covered by child support payments include costs of child care, healthcare costs and health insurance premiums for the child.
