Can you file bankruptcy on back child support?
You can file a chpt. 13 so that you can catch up and pay the arrears through the chpt. 13 payment plan. However, child support payments MUST be 100% PAID IN FULL. The only exception would be if the person OWED the child support AGREES to accept a different/lower amount.

No, however a father should and not wait for the mother to. see links below
No, at the maximum, you had until the child turned age 23 in Ohio.
I suggest that you contact your State's child support agency. When you get an interview with them, bring all the papers relating to your child support: birth certificates, a…cknowledgments of paternity, court orders, payment records, etc. Be polite but persistent. Good luck!
Answer No child and/or spousal support are not dischargeable in a chapter 7 BK. Answer It is my understanding that child support, student loans,… taxes owed, and things along that line cannot be included in a bankruptcy.
Was the back support generated because the other parent was not paying court ordered child support? If this is the case, you need to address the court ASAP. In some cases the… courts award retroactive child support, which in fact is back child support. However, you can't sue for back child support in a civil action.
Your question could be read in different ways. Child support is intended only for the support of children and their needs. If the children are in the custody of (living wit…h and being supported by) someone who is not the parent on a regular basis, that person must petition the court to be appointed the legal guardian and then petition for a child support order against the parents. If you are the parent then you must have custody in order to get child support. If your children are in the custody of someone else, such as the example provided above, you cannot receive child support.
This is from the IRS website: If you suspect or know of an individual or company that is not complying with the tax laws, you may report this activity by completing Form 394…9-A. You may fill out Form 3949-A online, print it and mail it to: Internal Revenue Service Fresno, CA 93888 If you do not wish to use Form 3949-A, you may send a letter to the address above. Please include the following information, if available: Name and address of the person you are reportingThe taxpayer identification number (social security number for an individual or employer identification number for a business)A brief description of the alleged violation, including how you became aware of or obtained the informationThe years involvedThe estimated dollar amount of any unreported incomeYour name, address and daytime telephone number Although you are not required to identify yourself, it is helpful to do so. Your identity can be kept confidential. You can turn this person in but leagally you will still be responsible for back support.
You receive a final judgment from Family Court on what is owed, after the child has aged out, than file in Civil Court.
Answer The defendant's response should be a written statement with a copy of the heading of the summons included or all information contained therein, (cas…e number, court division number, date and time of hearing, plaintiff, etc,). The statement from the defendant is simply his or her answers based only on pertinent facts to all the charges made in the suit. The defendant sends a copy to the plaintiff and/or plaintiff's attorney and files a copy in the office of the clerk of the court that issued the summons.
You can file in the state where the child lives, however if the father never lived there, the state has no long arm jurisdiction on the father, so you will need to file in his… state.
are you the obligor or obligee?
The answer to this question will depend on whether there is an existing case between the father and mother that has already set child support in the past. If there has been no… previous setting of child support, the parent requesting the support needs to file a petition and RULE NISI requesting an initial setting for child support. Attached to the petition should be an order requesting the defendant to show cause why child support should not be set. The court in which the petition is filed should have proper venue and jurisdiction. The court will set a hearing date based on this petition. When the hearing date arrives, the financial information from both parties will be used to determine child support. If a child support setting has already been made in a previous case, the court is going to require that there be a change in circumstances of one of the parents in order to be able to modify or reduce the amount of support. If there is an existing judgment of support, the party wanting to modify the support order is to file a motion for a modification of support. An order should be attached to the motion. Once the defendant is served and the court has set a date, the court will hear both sides arguments as to why support should or should not be modified. Warning Setting Child Support is much more complicated than it seems. A good family law attorney will be able to walk a client through the minefield of child support issues. If the child support amount is to high or too low, only a family law attorney will be able to recognize it. No one wants to over or underpay. Don't be that person who is paying or losing several thousand dollars a year because you decided to use a inexpensive attorney or attempted to practice the law yourself. In Addition, any statements provided within this answer are not intended as legal advice. The situation of your case is fact dependent. As a result, legal counsel should be consulted regarding your specific legal issue.
Unless the child is severely disabled, your chances are slim and none.
Custodial parent filed for support after moving out of the state of Nevada Is she entitled for child support and in order to receive this support will she have to move back to Nevada?
She is entitled to child support regardless of where either of you live. It is your child and you must help support him/ her, and no, she does not have to move back to Nevada.…
That's a motion to modify retroactive child support. Most states will not allow it. Of note, Judge David Grey Ross, Commissioner of the Federal Office of Child Support Enfor…cement opposed the practice of backdating child support. see links
