My question involves child support in the State of California enforced by Nevada DA where NCP lives:
The father (NCP) of my 3 children was arrested for a felony of operating without a securities license and theft. Out on bail wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet his attorney requested his passport be returned which was granted by the court.
To stay out of jail he (NCP) has agreed to pay over $300,000 in restitution. I believe this is unfair for my children are owed over $17,000 in arrears and there is currently a hold on his passport.
I received an email from the Nevada District Attorney stating that if the father of my children attempts to book an out-of-country trip he will be denied. They further claim our state (California) will not issue a 'release' of the passport until the arrears are paid to zero. This doesn't make since for I have traveled overseas and they do not ask for my passport number when I book a ticket I only produce it at the airport. I really wonder if his travel is prohibited in any way if he has his passport in his possession. Also I believe it is unfair that criminal restitution has precedence over my child support lien that was filed back in 2003 after the NCP was convicted for nonpayment of support. These crimes the NCP committed were in 2008. Both the Nevada District Attorney but also CSSD filed a lien against his name and property in Nevada.
