Do you still have to pay for a child after 10 years of not knowing you were the father?

You will certainly have to pay support beginning with the establishment of paternity.

Answer

Depending on the state, up until the child turns 19, retroactive 2-18 years worth, plus interest. But, some judges are turning down these motions on the advise of Judge David Grey Ross, Commissioner of the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement.
