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.
