CHILD SUPPORT COURT MOVES TO NEW LOCATION Contact: Leonard Cash, (702) 455-2383
Faster service and one-stop convenience are the goals of the Child Support Court of the Eighth Judicial District Court, Family Division as it moves to a new location.
This relocation will centralize and improve the adjudication of paternity and child support issues. Beginning Monday (March 29) the court will be located at the Child Support Center of Southern Nevada at 1900 E. Flamingo Road in the Greystone Complex near the intersection of Flamingo and Spencer Street.
Court Clerk counters will open on Monday (March 29) to accept new complaints and motions in pending cases. On April 5, Child Support Hearing Masters will begin hearing their calendars in two courtrooms.
Currently, the Family Court is partnering with the State of Nevada to potentially double the court calendars by July of 2010. Ultimately, the goal is to construct a third court room and hire another Hearing Master to manage this additional calendar.
“When this project is complete, there will be a significant increase in the adjudication of paternity, establishment and enforcement orders resulting in greater child-support collections for the citizens of Clark County. We want to become one of the most efficient, convenient and productive child-support courts in the nation and this is a monumental step in that direction” said Family Court Presiding Judge Gloria Sanchez.
The Child Support Center of Southern Nevada provides a one-stop facility for all child support matters from filing motions, to making payments to obtaining employment assistance.
The Center will house the Family Court’s Child Support Courts and Court Clerks, the Clark County District Attorney’s Family Support Division, the Employment Assistance Program and the Nevada State Collection and Disbursement Unit (ScaDu).
