Paying Child Support for A Handicapped Child
What you need to know about child support and handicapped children is that Nevada has a statute whereby a parent is obligated to support a handicapped child beyond the age of majority.
That child has to have had the handicap prior to reaching the age of majority, but the parent is responsible by law to continue the child support for a handicapped child after they’ve reached the age of majority. Once again, if that handicap occurred before the child reached the age of majority.
For this purpose, a handicap is described as a child that is physically or mentally impaired and therefore cannot support himself/herself. That impairment has to be continuous for 12 months or more before reaching the age of majority and also after the child has reached the age of majority that impairment must have been diagnosed or continued longer than a year.
This is a brief overview of the obligations for a parent with handicapped children.
