Child Support

*** Effective October 1st, 2019 the annual child support fee is increasing ***

If you received child support through the Child Support Enforcement Program AND you have never received TANF cash assistance you will see an increase in the annual fee from $25 a year to $35 a year. In accordance with Nevada Revised Statute 425.3847 and 42 U.S. Code 654, the $35 annual fee will be automatically deducted from your child support payment beginning on October 1, 2019, once $550 has been collected for the federal fiscal year (October 1st to September 30th).


 The Lyon County Child Support Enforcement Division of the District Attorney works for parents and guardians collecting child support. The office is located in the Yerington office of the District Attorney and is staffed Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Each case is assigned to a caseworker who is the primary contact for your case. It is important to provide all the information needed for the office to pursue your case.
