Getting a child support order does not guarantee that the other parent will voluntarily pay. Parents who are having trouble collecting child support can ask the Child Support Enforcement Office for help.  Visit this section for more information.

The Child Support Enforcement Office is a program operated by the State of Nevada that can assist parents in many ways.  Services offered include:

  • Establishing paternity of minor children
  • Locating non-custodial parents
  • Establishing a child support order
  • Enforcing a child support order
  • Modifying an existing child support order

Once a child support order is established, the enforcement office can collect the money through wage garnishments, IRS tax refund intercepts, and driver’s license suspensions.  The State of Nevada collects and distributes child support payments.

For more information about the services the Child Support Enforcement Office provides and how to apply, please visit their site at Child Support Enforcement Office.  You can also search for an office location office in Northern Nevada and Southern Nevada
