The Clark County District Attorney's Family Support division (DAFS) is offering a compromise for those behind on their child support payments.

From August 7-12, the DAFS will open its doors outside of normal business hours to help who don't have custody of their children with their cases. Staff will be on-hand from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Child Support Center of Southern Nevada at 1900 East Flamingo Road, Suite 100.

Non-custodial parents can come into the office to meet with a case manager without fear of being arrested. This includes those who have had their driver's license suspended or are currently under a bench warrant because they're behind on their child support payments.

Those who qualify will be able to pay just fifty percent of the suspension or bail amount to have their license reinstate and/or their bench warrant eliminated.

“We understand that people fall on hard times and get into situations where they see no way to get out," said Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson. "We want them to know there are options and we are willing to work with them to get the best results for their children.”

Other services available during the event include Ask-A-Lawyer, Modification Workshops, Access/Visitation Assistance, and Social Work Assistance.
