If you owe child support in MI and move to NV you are dealing with 2 very assertive child support collection states. MI is known for tracking out of state offenders and bringing them back to MI. Is there anyone you could borrow the money from so that you can come to NV with out the child support and warrant issue? I have to say that if you owed my child money I would not hesitate to let the state of MI know that you moved to NV and let them track you down.

Default Gaming License

The point is a gaming license is not the only means of employment, there are many of non-casinos employment opportunities. The gaming industry is all about trust and being a responsible individual, after all you will be working around millions of $$$ and if you cannot handle your personal finances, the gaming industry surly does not want you around their finances. If you can provide the proof that you are being responsible and taking care of your obligations, you'll get that 2nd chance. You need to realize its a trust factor, and to prove that you can be responsible (which debts are part of the responsibility) you made need to take a job sweeping gutters,etc but at least you are being responsible. You must being willing to do whatever it takes to meet your responsibilities, once met then apply for your gaming license.

Actually it is much more blanket than that. You can't get any license in Nevada with a child support problem. There has been a careful and thorough pass through the statutes where I believe every license has been barred to those with child supprt problems.

I agree in a way with Jared. It can make it difficult for one to make the money neccessary to meet ones obligations...but that is the will of the people.

I don't know if it's the will of the people or the will of the ex-wives and their lawyers. It's not my will and I'm a people. I went through he** with an ex-wife even though I never missed a child support payment, and I even paid her $200.00 a month more than was required. When our son came to live with me she not only didn't have to pay support even though at the time I think she made as much or more than I made, but she never even so much as bought him a Christmas present. I even had to get a judge to sign an agreement that I didn't have to pay HER while my son lived with me. Yet every chance she got, for no reason she would haul me into court just to make my life miserable. The first time she wanted more money I offered to discuss it with her but she said no I want a judge to decide. After the judge wouldn't even hear my side of the story he gave her a raise and then admonished us for not working it out among ourselves, and penalized me $1000.00 for her legal expense which was probably no more than $500.00 to begin with. The last time she pulled that I came in prepared and she lost, but it still took over a year to settle everything when there was nothing to settle. They say you never know a woman until you meet her in court.

Still, Jared, you have got to suck it up...be man...and go back to MI and handle it. Otherwise these people are going to ruin your life from now on. They should let you make payments. But no matter where you live, as soon as you get a paycheck they can run you down. So you probably need to take the initiative.

BTW: It's not a gaming license unless you're a casino operator. It's a work permit...and you won't get one for any job where you would be handling money until you clear this all up.

Moving back to Michigan is not an option less work there then even here. I contacted the Nevada Gaming Commission and said they decide it at a case by case basis. If your making an effort you and get a payment plan setup you should be fine. But from everything I am reading here seems like I would be wasting my time and would be better off getting a non gaming job to pay it off first then get my license. Trying to avoid the situation where I am having to get 2 low paying jobs go to school and struggle to pay the $300+ month child support. With the "permit" I could get a good paying job as a Slot Tech and get out of this hole that much faster.

Buzz123,
This is not about ex-wives , stop bashing....
Child Support orders are not about the adults, rather it be an ex-wife or ex-husband. It should be about the children. Although I do agree your ex-wife should not have used your child as a way take revenge towards you. As adults we need to put our personal feelings aside, and do what is best for our children pay the support.

Seems to me the child would be better served if the State would allow the father to use his skills and experience to get the best possible job to financially support his child.

Preventing a father the opportunity to earn a good income from working in a field he has already been trained in benefits no one.

One does not need a gaming license to work in a casino a Nevada, only a work card. Gaming licenses are held by very few people in Nevada, only necessary as a "key" employee of a property. Unless you have warrants outstanding, you will get a work card.

Actual a gaming work card is a license.

From the regulations...

Licensing authorities are obligated to follow the uniform screening process
specified by NGC Reg. 5.103(1); apply the standard criteria for the denial of a
gaming work permit application (NGC Reg. 5.103(2)); and suspend the gaming
work permit application process if the applicant has outstanding warrant for
his/her arrest, or it is determined that the applicant is not in compliance with a court order for child support (NGC Reg. 5.103(5) and (6)).
