Joint custody may be agreed-upon by the parties and usually is accepted by the court when it is considered to be the in the best interest of the child. Joint custody does not necessarily mean children spend an equal amount of time with each parent.
The standard Nevada state child support guidelines apply in nearly every case unless there are special circumstances in existence.

Child support continues until the child reaches age 18 and may continue to cover the child’s secondary education.
