MLaw Child Support Program
MLaw Child Support performs a fast, simple, and accurate calculation of support under the new regulations, taking into account split custody situations and the poverty guidelines.
History and Reasons for Existence
In 2017, the Nevada Legislature appointed a commission to review the current child support laws. The commission adopted new regulations that were enacted as part of the Nevada Administrative Code and will go into effect on February 1, 2020.
The math required in the new calculations is more complicated than the math that was required for the existing statutes. The new calculations require a varying percentage of gross monthly income on the first $6,000 of income, a lower percentage on the next $4,000, and an even lower percentage for income exceeding $10,000 per month. The new regulations also remove the $100 per month minimum and instead reference the federal poverty guidelines. It is because of these new difficult calculations that we created the MLaw Child Support program.
Free for public use.
The MLaw Child Support program is available in all Nevada self-help centers, law libraries, and courtrooms in Clark County.
