Types of Custody
In Nevada, there are two types of child custody:
- Legal custody – Making major decisions, relating to religious upbringing, schooling and medical care.
- Physical custody – The location where the child eats, sleeps and lives
Typically the parents share legal custody and one parent is granted primary physical custody. The non-custodial parent has parenting time, or visitation.
Determining Child Support
Child support is calculated according to a formula that looks at the income of both parents. The number of overnight visits to the non-custodial parent will affect the child support payment formula. Other child support issues to consider are:
- Insurance – Who covers the children, pays the co-pay, covers prescriptions, glasses and braces?
- Extracurricular activities – Who pays for dance class, soccer lessons and football uniforms?
- Tax issues – Who claims the children as a dependant and who gets to use the tax credits?
