Child support is often part of a family law case. If you are seeking child support, you would do so as part of your divorce, parentage, or other case.
Clark County's Family Court Facilitator program provides assistance to individuals who are representing themselves in matters dealing with many family law issues. The facilitator is available for in-person assistance by appointment for a fee.
