Spousal support is based on the premise that both spouses have an absolute obligation to support each other during their marriage and spousal support is the extension of that obligation after separation or divorce. Nevada has relatively vague statutes regarding spousal support and simply list factors that the judge should consider in determining the amount. These factors include but are not limited to: length of marriage, health of the parties, age of parties, relative income, and future financial prospects.
