No. However, it might be possible for the custodial parent to sue for financial damages incurred because of the non compliance of the obligated parent, depending upon whether or not the state in which the order was issued has a statute of limitations for the action. The same applies to any state or federal agency which rendered public assistance for support of the minor child.
Your custodial parent can collect unpaid support that accrued under an order. Support sometimes continues after the child becomes an adult if the child is disabled.
No, child support is not paid to the child but to the parent raising the child.
No, as an adult there is no longer need for a child support. Your father should have done this when you were a child.
No. Child support is owed to the custodial parent.The right to collect child support belongs to the custodial parent, not the child, even after the child is an adult they cannot bring a suit for back child support.An adult child may be able to bring a suit for child support arrears on behalf of their parent's estate if they are the court appointed representative of the estate and any statute of limitations has not expired. In that case thy should consult with an attorney.
if you have insurance and they die, like that gerber life plan...but not if theyre over18 if its child support
The adult child might have a claim on the deceased parent's estate.
In some cases it is possible for an adult to sue a non compliant parent for child support arrearages. However, there must be established paternity and a child support order in place before the child reaches the age specified in the laws of the state where the child was born.
Generally, parents are not responsible for the debts of their adult children. (Sometimes there are exceptions for severely disabled children.)
When did you file? Was it ever heard in court? How old is your child?
Yes it is, as an adult you can decide to collect what you want to. Many adults already collect Corgi and Dinky toys so why not Hot Wheels.
I don't know, but I am aware of several cases where the custodial parent collected back child support years after the child reached adult age, even to the point of garnishing social security payments.
If you live in Texas is answer is absolutly YES. I have been collecting arrearages owed for the past 7 years.
No. What you suggest is not possible.
If there was an order entered, the statute of limitations never expires on unpaid child support. If there was never an order entered, you're not going to get one entered at this point.
Most states do not allow a child to collect back support as an adult. Although the right to child support belongs to the child, support is payable to the custodial parent to assist in the care and upbringing of that child. If the custodial parent did not receive that support, then she (or he) made contributions that should have come from the other parent, and the right to collect the back support belongs to her.
This will be successful only if the child is severely handicapped.
Yes. There is no statute of limitations on collecting past-due child support. Keep in mind that he might not have any money.
Once the child has reached maturity, past child support is uncollectable. Frustrating as this is, that is the way it goes.
No. There really is no such thing as "unused" benefits. If a person pays FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes but dies before he or she can collect benefits, his or her widow or widower and minor children, or adult children disabled before age 22 (if applicable) can collect monthly checks for survivors' benefits. Able-bodied adult children or those who became disabled after age 22 cannot collect benefits from their mother's Social Security (FICA) contributions. The unpaid amount remains in the Social Security trust fund.
The 19 year old is an adult and should pay own medical bills.
Not unless the parents are a party to the agreement such as a co-signer.
Probably not. Emancipation makes you legally an adult, but it requires that you be able to support yourself and be treated as an adult. A child that needs support will not be emancipated.
