District Court Family Division Judge Linda Marquis quashed 131 warrants at an annual child support super Saturday event on Aug. 10. In recognition of child support awareness month, the Clark County District Attorney’s Family Support Division (DAFS) coordinated the event to improve engagement and relationships with those involved with the child support program and to handle outstanding child support issues favorably.

More than 850 people attended the event to take advantage of a variety of child support related services presented in a one-stop-shop format.

  • 131 bench warrants were quashed with reduced fees paid
  • 150 driver’s licenses were reinstated with child support payment
  • 97 customers attended the ask-a-lawyer sessions
  • 60 customers were served at the order modification workshop
  • 20 customers received services from DAFS social workers
  • 11 customers were referred to the Access/Visitation Mediation Program
  • $62,825 in past due child support was collected
  • 428 staff-donated backpacks filled with school supplies were given to parents and their children

Quashing warrants and eliminating other barriers associated with unpaid child support is believed to be an effective way to help those struggling to meet child support obligation to get on track.
