Does Child Support Exist Without Divorce?

Nevada will allow a parent to file for custody and visitation rights without a legal divorce, so support can be issued. Temporary custody must be decided prior to filing a petition for support. In this situation both parents have an equal right to have the children live with them, unless records show past abuse.
