Yes, you can file a civil suit. But it is hard to win. The law is not on the mans side.

Actually it depends on the state. In fact, in Oregon they are trying to pass a paternity fraud bill that allows the man to stop payment if he finds out the child isn't his without a time frame. Right now the period of time to challenge paternity is 1 year. Sorry to say, but this bill does not allow the father to sue for child support already paid, but will eliminate past due child support, and the courts may continue his visitation with child in the case that he still wants it. Ohio on the other hand, I believe, allows for him to sue for that paid money. Check the laws in your state.

in the majority of states you wouldn't get any money back after paying child support

Is it possible for a child to file a law suit against his father for not supporting him?

No. A child cannot file a lawsuit. It needs to be brought on his behalf by a legal guardian. However, child support is an issue between parents. It is not paid to the child.

This assumes that you're asking about retroactive support (support due for a period prior to the entry of the first order), not unpaid support that accrued as the result of an order). Retroactive support is typically included in the first order entered in the case.

Can you bring a lawsuit against the mother for past child support you paid if you find out the child is not yours in Ohio?

Plain logic would seem to indicate that the person could recover funds that were paid. That is not always the case, if a child support was ordered through the court on the premise that the man was the father, he will have to file a petition under Ohio's disestablishment statute. If the petition is found valid, he would be declared not to be the parent of the child, and could then file a lawsuit against the mother (maybe). There are several deciding factors in obtaining such a declaration, a few are, if the man voluntarily acknowledged paternity, how long the relationship lasted, if the man established a parent-child relationship and so forth.
