For your Las Vegas Divorce and Child Custody concerns.
Child support enforcement is not located at the Family Courthouse, it is
located the Greystone Building at 1900 E. Flamingo, Suite 100, Las Vegas,
Child support enforcement is where a case can be opened to commence a
child support case or to enforce an “already in place” child support order.
The same guidelines apply for determining the amount of child support as
any other case in the State of Nevada.
The benefit of going to child support enforcement is that the District
Attorney has resources not readily made available to private attorneys such
as suspending driver’s licenses, Passport restrictions, intercepting tax
returns, etc. Therefore, many Family Court Judges regularly refer matters to
child support enforcement. You do not need an open custody matter at
Family Court for an action to be opened through child support enforcement.
In a child support enforcement action, the District Attorney is appearing for
the parent seeking child support or on behalf of the government if benefits
are being received on behalf of the child. In addition, private attorneys can
be retained by either parent in a child support enforcement matter. The
matter is heard by a Commissioner who presides in the matter and is not
elected to the bench. If either parent disagrees with the action taken by the
Commissioner, the decision can be disputed to the Family Court Judge
assigned to the matter.
