Types of Alimony in Nevada

Nevada actually utilizes four different types of spousal support:

  1. Temporary. Temporary support lasts while a divorce is ongoing and is intended to help a party remain financially stable until the divorce resolves.
  2. Short-term. Short-term support enables a party to remain financially stable post-divorce until they can support themselves. Usually, courts determine a deadline for short-term support orders. A party has until the deadline to obtain the employability or professional training necessary to become financially stable.
  3. Rehabilitative. If one party contributed economically to their spouse's education or career during their marriage, he or she may be eligible for rehabilitative support. Additionally, rehabilitative alimony can be used to support a formerly dependent spouse until he or she obtains the necessary training to become financially independent.
  4. Permanent. In some cases, often if a couple has been married for a very long time or one party cannot feasibly achieve financial stability, the court may award permanent support to one party, which remains in place until the death of one party, remarriage of the support recipient, or further order of the court.

In awarding alimony, the judge may consider the financial condition of each spouse, the property of each spouse, contributions to property, the duration of the marriage, the income of each spouse, the earning capacity of each spouse, the age and health of each spouse, the lifestyle during the marriage, the careers of each spouse prior to marriage, education/training received by each spouse during the marriage, whether either spouse was a homemaker, the assets each spouse will have after the divorce, physical and mental condition of each spouse as it related to that spouses ability to work, and other factors.

How Much Alimony Will I Owe or Receive?

Unlike some states, there is no official calculator that Nevada courts use to determine how much alimony a party should receive.

Instead, judges decide alimony payments on a case-by-case basis depending on the details of the case, which is why having an alimony attorney you can rely on for your case is so vital.

At Bremer Whyte Brown & O'Meara, our Las Vegas alimony lawyers will fight for you in and out of court, helping you pursue the right alimony arrangement for your needs.
