A record-breaking amount in child support payments has been collected this year by the Clark County district attorney’s family services division.
The division, which is responsible for 59 percent of the state’s child support enforcement caseload, collected more than $132 million in payments this year on behalf of custodial parents.
“Yet another record-breaking year,” District Attorney Steve Wolfson said in a statement. “I am very proud of the great work done by our DAFS team. Their dedication to helping the families in Clark County continues to exceed expectations. In addition to our employees, I want to thank our community partners and the courts on the DAFS campus. Because of our combined efforts, even more custodial parents and their children are receiving the funds they need for the basics in life.”
There is no fee for custodial parents to open a case with the family support division. Services offered to parents include assistance in getting a child support order, or enforcement or modification of an existing order.
