Case Synopsis

Rod Mason and Martine Cuisenaire were divorced under a decree from a North Carolina court, but did not raise the issue of child support for their mutual child in that court. Cuisenaire petitioned a Nevada court to grant retroactive and prospective child support since Mason had since moved to Nevada. The Nevada Supreme Court held that the district court was correct in awarding retroactive child support, but that the district court should have relied upon North Carolina law, not Nevada law, in determining its retroactive support award.
