Q: What is the law if the child lives in Nevada and the non custodial parent lives in Louisiana how can arrears be enforc
A: Child support arrears from another state can be enforced where the non custodial parent lives.
A: Regardless of where the parent lives, if they were ordered to pay child support, they are obligated to comply with that order. If the order is not being met, then the parent has the option to file a motion for contempt in Nevada. The judge may then impose penalties or punishments for failure to pay child support. Contacting your local Child Support Agency may also help in enforcing past due child support payments through wage garnishment or garnishing tax returns, etc.
