Back Child Support Problems?

Do you need an Attorney for back child support issues?

When a parent falls behind in their monthly child support payments, this can lead to “arrears.” When the arrears amount becomes large enough, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to catch up. Individuals that owe child support arrears often receive threatening notices from the Clark County District Attorney’s Office, Child Support Enforcement Division that claim the parent owes thousands, or even tens of thousands, of dollars in back child support.

What many parents who owe back child support do not realize, is that often, arrears can be adjusted and credit can be obtained for payments that weren’t credited. Sometimes a compromise of arrears may be negotiated, and at the very least a payment plan can be negotiated.

If a parent that owes back support does not act first, the DA will take action. Enforcement of child support may include suspending a Nevada driver’s license, intercepting a tax return, garnishing your bank accounts, and may include jail time or possible criminal charges.

If you owe back child support, it is important to consult an attorney. Negotiating a payment plan, or even attempting to alleviate an arrears obligation, can be complicated and burdensome. Hiring a qualified attorney to advocate on your behalf is critical so that you do not end up paying more than necessary.
