Although I feel fathers should, in most cases, be part of their children's lives and certainly take responsibility for paying child support, it's dishonest to collect child support for two children when you only had one at home. If this was the agreement with the court, then yes, your ex can make you pay back some of that money. Let's hope he has a big heart! Marcy

It is fraud to collect child support for (2) children if a person only has (1) child. The person should absolutely return the money, it is not her's to keep.
