    Hello. Who do I contact in NV to bring suit against the employer Official Security owners Margaret & Darryl Cronfeld who sends the child support in quarterly & that's only after calling & calling. Fails to follow the court order by paying monthly....

    Allison’s Answer

    From the way you pose your question it is not clear whether you are the parent paying child support who is not receiving credit due to your employers delay -- or whether you are the recipient parent who is receiving child support. As that make a difference for your response please clarify.

    Allison’s Answer

    This type of violation requires a court appearance so you will not be receiving information about a fine. The issue of driving without corrective lenses is a violation separate and apart from any issue of speeding. It is imperative that you get your driver's license corrected. Regardless of whether you feel you need glasses or not -- so long as your license carries that restriction, you are in violation each and every time you get behind the wheel without wearing corrective lenses. You need to see an eye doctor, get your vision cleared and then take proof of that test, to the DMV and ask to be re-tested.

  • Im 25 and my dad never and I mean never paid child support or ever bothered to look for me but say I found him can I sue him?

    Or have him pay for those 18 years of not paying child support and hiding?

    Allison’s Answer

    Unfortunately you have not provided enough facts to fully answer your question. Factors such as whether there were any court orders in place requiring payment, and/or whether and what efforts were made to recovery support while you were still a minor, will all factor into the answer to your question.

    Generally however there are certain limitation in the recovery of child support put in place by statute. That statutory citation is NRS 125B.050, which provides:

    1. If there is no court order for support, any demand in writing to a parent not having physical custody for payment of support on behalf of a minor child, mailed to the last known address of the parent, tolls the running of the statute of limitations for the bringing of an action for that support.
    2. A motion for relief after judgment and an independent action to enforce a judgment for support of a child may be commenced at any time.
    3. If a court has issued an order for the support of a child, there is no limitation on the time in which an action may be commenced to:
    (a) Collect arrearages in the amount of that support; or
    (b) Seek reimbursement of money paid as public assistance for that child.

  • Pregnant and child support

    I just learned that I am pregnant from a guy I dated and lived with in Vegas. I live in Cali. part time. Is the father responsible for child support though we are not married, engaged or seeing each other?

    Allison’s Answer

    I agree with the responses of the other lawyers. Child support is an obligation of both parents regardless of marital or relationship status. That being said, both parents also have rights associated with child rearing. I recommend you see an attorney to explore all of your options.

    get that amount lowered through negotiations?

    Allison’s Answer

    The short answer is anything is possible, but both parties must be motivated to entered into negtiations. Given that your lender already has an enforceable note the odds are probably against it. I agree with the answer of the other lawyer. It would be important to retain an attorney to review your best options.
