"Sue" just means "ask". You're asking the courts to award you a judgment. Many states now allow minors to ask that the parents be required to pay child support for the time they spent at home; it is considered to be against the public good to allow either parent to escape without paying. Once a child becomes an adult they can file their own action to recover support if the custodial parent did not did not have orders enforced. In most states this can include asking for DNA to prove who the real father is. The key is to remember the child support is designed to equalize the standard of living between the parents so that the child does not go from a very deprived home to one with a lot of money. If the parent did not ask for assistance, the child can.
