Yes, if in cases of unmarried persons paternity has been established. If pataernity is uncertain then it will be required by the court before a petition for child support can be addressed. Collection of child support for years passed is only possible if there was a valid court order for support relating to the year(s) in question.
no it goes to the mother.
no not at the age of 20 years of the child. It may be of 25 years of the child
The mother cannot receive child support for a child who is over the age of 18. However, if the father owes money from before, that money has to be paid to the mother, even if the child is over 18. The father owes child support whether or not he sees the child.
Depending on the state, she has until the child turns 18 to 23 to file for up to 18 years retroactive support.
No, 11 years too late, and dangerous. I growing number of relationships with mother are destroyed by these actions when the adult child learns their mother had been lying about getting child support.
In this case, you can not force the mother to be in contact with her child, neither can the court, however, you are, and by all means, entitled to child support. All you need to do is, file for it.
Yes, and the mother should request it retroactively.
If she's kept the claim current.
Petition the court for a modification. If the back support was for any state aid the mother was on, then it can't be forgiven. If it isn't for that, then the mother can write a letter saying she forgives the back support owed to her.
arrears - yes; current (ongoing) support - yes, if the child is still a minor/dependent; retroactive support - maybe, it depends on several factors
No. The statute of limitations for child support arrears in New York is twenty years from the date of the default. However, in your case it seems that your mother never obtained a court order for child support. You have no cause of action.
Yes, but she can wait up to 18 years to file for retroactive child support. see related question
Yes but if you all take it to court paternity will have to be established but yes he can make the mother pay support and rightfully so but why dont the mother start spending equal amount of time with the child and no one pays support and the child wins cause they have both parents
Generally, two years or the date of birth of the child, whichever occurred later. However, in theory, retroactive support could be awarded as far back as 18 years.
Not supporting at all if there is a child support order can mean he will end up in prison. Not seeing the child for a 1-2 years can mean the mother can apply to have his rights removed but the child support will stay.
He has to prove paternity in court to get his parental rights. He can then petition for custody, visitation and pay child support and also petition to sign the birth certificate. He could have done this 6 years ago when the child was born. The mother cannot deny him his parental rights. Now he will have to pay child support and he can even owe for 6 years back.
If your child is 18 years of age or older, and considered an adult, then no you do not have any basis with which to sue the father for child support. That child is considered an adult by legal standards and not a dependent. Only for full-time dependents do you have any grounds for child support.
Yes, even if the mother of the child is an adult and statutory rape is involved. see links
If she did so with a judge, she can still refile later, but not for retroactive. If it was not before a judge, than a mother can wait up to 23 years to file for up to 18 years of retroactive child support, depending on the state, and rehardless of any previous claim. see links below
For what is he wasn't required to pay?
She already has sole legal custody as an unmarried mother. He can petition for visitation and pay child support.
Five years, unless the mother was on welfare. see link
The parent either mother or father is obligated to pay child support until that child/children turn 18 years old.
