Naimi Mullins Law Group Alimony

Alimony & Spousal Support Lawyers in Las Vegas, NV

Alimony or spousal support are financial obligations one spouse may have to pay the other during or following a Nevada divorce. This obligation is not automatic. If you believe you need alimony, you must request it in divorce. The courts determine whether it will be awarded, its amount, and duration on a case-by-case basis. 

Spousal support is the support one spouse pays to the other pending litigation. Alimony is one spouse’s payment to another to compensate for lost income in a divorce. The amount of alimony you will have to contribute or may receive will depend entirely on your unique situation, including, but not limited to, your job, income, age, education, and the length of your marriage. 

While spouses may agree on the amount of alimony to be paid during negotiations, this matter is left up to a judge if an agreement cannot be made.

In either case, the backing of a qualified divorce attorney to help you through the nuances of your case can be crucial. Naimi Mullins Law Group offers legal support services for those determining spousal maintenance or alimony in their divorce. Our attorneys can help you fight against paying alimony based on your current financial situation or help you seek alimony based on your current income.

Types of Alimony & Spousal Support in Nevada

In Nevada, several types of alimony have been designed to meet the varying needs of individuals going through a divorce: 

  • Temporary: the support received while a divorce case is pending.
  • Permanent: received after your divorce is finalized for a specific amount of time; it may be short-term to assist in transitioning to a single life or long-term, possibly the rest of one’s life.
  • Rehabilitative: the support received to contribute to education or job training so a spouse may learn to support themselves.

Termination of Alimony in Nevada

Alimony can be terminated under several circumstances in Nevada. Most commonly, alimony ends when the term specified in the divorce decree is reached, if the receiving spouse remarries, or upon the death of either spouse. 

Also, alimony may be reduced or terminated if the recipient spouse cohabitates with another person in a relationship akin to a marriage, which may change the financial support needed. 

The paying spouse can also petition the court for a modification or termination of alimony if there is a significant change in circumstances, such as a job loss, a substantial decrease in income, or the retirement of the paying spouse. 

Both parties should be aware that the specific terms of the alimony agreement can also outline particular conditions for termination or modification. It is essential to understand these terms clearly; our attorneys can advise you on this matter.

How Naimi Mullins Law Group Can Help

While alimony can be a relatively straightforward divorce matter, it can be complicated, involving children, marital property and debt, hidden assets, and more. Our attorneys have decades of experience helping divorcing spouses determine fair and equitable alimony payments. 

Even if you are committed to reaching a compromise with your spouse instead of leaving your situation in a judge’s hands, hiring an attorney to best represent your case in negotiations, mediation, or court is vital.
