Las Vegas, NV asked in Family Law for Nevada

Q: Is the "child support and welfare" form needed if there are not children involved?

This may sound like a silly question, but I'm getting mixed information. I read one place that people need to fill it out because the form discloses SS numbers which are required for filing for divorce, but it does not make sense to do the form when there are no children. My soon to be ex has 2 kids from his previous marriage. I have not adopted them and their mother is still involved. So we are filing a joint petition with no kids.

A: You should call and ask the clerk of court. Are you saying that Social Security numbers ARE required to be filed in Nevada? That seems strange, because most courts have measures in place to prevent Social Security numbers being available for public access.
