If you're a parent behind on child support, this is a great opportunity to catch up while resolving outstanding legal issues.
As part of National Child Support Awareness Month, the DA's Office is offering a back-to-school program beginning Monday, Aug. 13 and running through Saturday, Aug. 18.
Non-custodial parents can make payments in return for resolving outstanding child support issues including active bench warrants and suspended driver's licenses.
Payments may be made at the Family Support Division Office at the Child Support Center of Southern Nevada, 1900 E. Flamingo Rd., Suite 100.
Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 13 through Aug. 17. The office will be open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18.
"We want to make it easy and convenient for clients to come into our office to resolve outstanding enforcement issues and make much-needed child support payments," said Assistant District Attorney Teresa Lowry, who heads the Family Support Division. "This is an important program to offer this time of year because families need extra money to buy children the supplies, clothes and lunches they need when they go back to school."
No appointments are necessary and, during the program, you may pay with a credit card in addition to cash, money orders, cashier's checks and debit cards.
