Thank you for your reply.
You should get a judgment against the tenant, even though under NV law, the unemployment benefits may not be garnished. The reason you want a judgment is because eventually they will begin working or you can actually file to garnish/levy their bank account every 6-12 months and make them prove they are still on unemployment.
A judgment in NV is good for 6 years and you can file a motion to renew the judgment for another 6 years anytime before the 6 year period expires.
So, sue, get a judgment then wait 6 months if they do not pay, go to court and file for writ of seizure for their bank accounts and see if they have money every 6 months or so to try to collect.
You file suit in your local court against him and you have 4 years to file a lawsuit for breach of an oral contract and 6 years to file suit for breach of a written contract against the party. You would have to win your lawsuit first and the court will award a judgment and you can file for garnishment in the same court that you get the judgment in.As far as finding his address, that is something you would have to do some work and find and it may mean needing a private investigator to do so.
