Why would someone not claim child support money the baby's mother has 2000 sitting in Jeff City MO and has not claimed any of it?
If they don't feel like they need it then they may feel guilty taking it. They may feel that the money would be needed more by somebody else.

If the mother of a child is not legal to be in the country can she still take her baby's dad to court for child support and if she does since she is illegal would she get in any legal trouble?
Answer . Sounds like you became pregnant by an American? I am not an attorney, but they would probably send you back to mexico. You need to seek legal advice.
Child support cannot be claimed on taxes. A payer of child supportmay be able to claim the child as a dependent, but the payments arenot tax deductible or count as taxable inc…ome.
Any mother can go to court in the US to claim child support form the father for a child she is caring for. Babies are not born by spontaneous combustion. The father is as resp…onsible for the child's welfare as is the mother. If the child is living with the father and custody given to the father, the mother is liable for child support, too.
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!
if she has primary custody, from the point of the filing date.
No, child support is not tax deductible for the payer, nor taxable for the recipient. See IRS Publication 504 for details: http://www.irs.gov/publications/p504/ar02.html#en_U…S_2010_publink1000175957
I believe your "active" parent would need to initiate and start the process. The money you seek from the absent parent, by law, would be for child support for the active paren…t to help with expenses that occur with raising a child. I recommend contacting your local Child Support Agency to ascertain what steps your active parent needs to take to see if they (you) can start the process. You can do a search by typing "child support" and add in your city, state. Good Luck! . But, be careful in this regard. A growing number of relationships with mothers are being destroyed when the children are learning their mothers did get child support and was denying the father access to his children. There are non government programs to help enforce court order visitation like there is for child support.
No, it is neither income nor tax deductible. see link below.
Is there a statute of limitations on child support claim by an out of marriage mother in the state of Texas?
A custodial parent may always file a claim for child support, but there might be a limit on the amount of retroactive support ordered.
She could file a claim against the estate for the unpaid balance, if any, of support that accrued while the children were minors. There is no statute of limitations on collect…ing past-due child support.
A step father has no legal obligation to support a step child.
In Child Support
In most states yes. However, the child will not claim it, rather the custodial parent.
In Child Support
The obligee may include child support as income for purposes of obtaining credit.
In Child Support
To claim a child as a dependent on your taxes, the child must have lived with you and you must have provided support for over 50% of the year. So the mother in this case can c…laim her grandson on her taxes if she supported the child for at least 183 days out of the year, regardless of whether or not the mother of the child owes back child support.
