No, but your mother can. * Yes,in most states once a child becomes of legal age they can sue a parent for non-support only if there was a valid court order for support to be paid. States that allow such litigation also have established SOL's concerning the matter.

You certainly can, so long as there was an order for child support when you had the child. If arrears accumulated and the other parent now has the child, you are still entitled to the arrears. If there was not a preexisting order for support when you had the child, you might be able to receive retro support, though the laws vary from state to state.

The child is now 15. What will happen to the father paying child support and back child support if you get back together after 15 years?

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.
