The answer to the questions would depend on the what the court papers said.
Did it include past child support, current support, judgements, ect?
Also, while a mother could waive current/ongoing and past child support due to her for the child, she can not waive an amount due to the... Read more »

prior to obtaining a child support court order. My daughter is now an adult. Can I reopen case and receive back child support?
answered on Jun 15, 2022
It appears that since the child reached majority without any child support order in place, from either the family court or the district attorney child support division, you waived the right as you intentionally relinquished your right to child support by closing the support case.
He owes $25K in arrears and was being garnished but now has his commission checks cut in his RE partners name to avoid further garnishments
answered on May 2, 2022
I am assuming that you have an order from either the family court or DA's office as the father has been garnished. You can either contact the DA's office and request they investigate further into his income or file a motion with the family court.
Because the arrears are over... Read more »
If it is child abandonment, would the mother still have to petition through the courts for him to sign over his parental rights?
answered on Apr 4, 2022
In Nevada, abandonment occurs after a 6 month absence from the child. However, the absence doesn't automatically amount to giving up the parental rights to the child. The mother would have to file with the court to have the rights terminated.
I owe 20000 now I found out when they took my stimulus n refund last year.My ex told child support he didnt want the money but they are still pursuing.can I get this dismissed?
answered on Feb 12, 2022
Your ex can contact District Attorney child support division and request to 'waive' the outstanding child support arrears.
answered on Nov 21, 2021
It is very unlikely that you will be made responsible for a child you had no knowledge of. It is best to speak to an attorney to better understand the specifics of your case and discuss your rights.
Do I have any recourse to stop this?
answered on Apr 21, 2021
There are two ways to modify child support by mutual agreement or by court order.
Remember that you will have to prove to the court that there is a substantial change in circumstances to the original order issued by the court.

If an existing child support order is in place, a modification is only warranted in the case of a 20% change in income. If not, any parent is entitled to motion for child support, however the amount is based on the custody arrangement in place. I would suggest you enlist the help of an experienced... Read more »

In difficult situations like this, my suggestion is to first always attempt to talk civilly with your ex and see if it’s possible to come to an agreement on how to handle the situation.

Yes, If you owe back child support (arrearages) then the child support division can place a lien on a personal injury settlement.

The judge has a duty to be impartial and their former employment should not play a part in their ruling. However, if you feel uncomfortable, you may exercise... Read more »

In my experience, this extension is very commonly offered as a courtesy by either opposing attorneys or by the court. You do have the option to object, however, in my opinion it may not serve you well in the long run if you do return to court.
