In most cases in the US, a minor is not liable for paying child support until he or she reaches the legal age of majority.
The rare exception is if the underage person has an income source which warrants support being paid (active trust fund or inheritance, celebrity status, etc.).
When it concerns unmarried couples, child support, custody, visitation and other matters cannot be addressed by the court until the child is born and parentage is established regardless of the age of the participants.
When the minor reaches the legal age of majority he or she can be ordered to pay support based on their ability to do so, but arrears would not apply.
But, if the minor was sexually abuse by a much older female, he is still obligate for child support at some point, even retroactive back to the date of the birth.
