Case Number: 2021-021964 (Urgent)

This is an appeal from a denial of a Motion for Review and Modification of Child Support and Respondent is seeking representation. The parties share joint legal custody of their minor child. Respondent has primary physical custody. Appellant had been ordered to pay child support. In June of 2020, the Washoe County District Attorney filed a notice of intent to enforce child support and Appellant sought to modify the amount of support based on his changed financial circumstances. The Motion for Review and Modification was denied and Appellant filed a Notice of Appeal on March 31, 2021. Appellant filed a Pro Per Brief on May 3, 2021 and Respondent attempted to file an Answer on July 9, 2021 but the court returned it unfiled. On July 19, 2021, the court determined that the appointment of pro bono counsel to represent both appellant and respondent would assist this court in reviewing this appeal.
