It's not impossible but it is highly unlikely that the court would address such an issue. The premise being that the adult child waited far too long to pursue litigation. The majority of US states do have statute of limitations pertaining to the recovery of child support arreages. For states that do not have an SOL, arrearage recovery is usually only applicable when money is owed to the state due to the child/children having received public assistance.

Can the obligated parent discharge child support arrearages in a bankruptcy once the child reaches the age of 18?

If what you mean is can back owed child support payments be discharged in bankruptcy: NO. Regardless of how old the child is now. on the other hand if you mean to be included in the repayment schedule for a chapter 13 then yes. Child support arrearages can sometimes be included in bankruptcy. This pertains to arrearages only and not to current support due. A bankruptcy petition cannot override a court order of support and if arrearages are allowed to be included in a 13 the arrearages must be paid in full, not a percentage thereof, as is possible with unsecured creditors.

If your child is adopted without your knowledge do you have to pay child support arrearages?

That is not possible unless fraud has been committed by the custodial parent. Before a child is eligible for adoption all legal steps must be completed as outlined by the laws of the state in which the child is a resident. A biological parent must voluntarily relinquish his or her rights to the child or have those rights permanently terminated by the court. An adoption cannot proceed until the above litigation is completed and a final TPR decree granted. When a child is legally adopted by a new spouse or by a qualified party, the responsibility of financial support by a biological parent(s) is terminated. The court will address the issue of arrearages and if they are applicable before the adoption becomes final.

If the order became valid when the child was, 16 the obligated parent would have to pay ten years of arrearages as opposed to 16.
