Child support services are administered by the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services under the Department of Health and Human Services.
There are three major offices located in Reno, Elko and Las Vegas, with each providing services for the surrounding counties.
Child support can be collected by anyone that is raising the child, regardless of relation or custody.
Health insurance is mandatory for all Nevada children and will factor into the court-mandated support order. Non-custodial parents must pay support until the child is 18 or finishes high school at the age of 19.
Child support orders can be reviewed every three years at the request of either parent. If you need legal advice and assistance, contact Nevada lawyers.
