Your mother should have pursued your father in court for child support when you were young. In most jurisdictions you have no legal standing to sue your father for child support now, and especially if there was no original child support order. If there was an order at some time your mother may be able to sue for arrears but that seems not to be the case.
Absolutely. Check with a family lawt attorney or your local child support office for more information.
yes dead beat.
The adult child might have a claim on the deceased parent's estate.
Every state honors child support orders. The original support order would stipulate when the support is to end.
If there's a court order for child support and he is not paying you have to report him to the same court that issued the order.
No, not likely. If you are over 18 yrs. of age, you are considered an adult, and child support is exactly what it is...."child-support" for CHILDREN, not adults!
If there was an order entered, the statute of limitations never expires on unpaid child support. If there was never an order entered, you're not going to get one entered at this point.
Up until the child turns age 18 and even if the father was never notified of the existence of the child, as is common.
No. Very few states allow for child support to be issued 30 years after birth, but even if you lived in one that did, child support is an obligation paid to the other parent and is never owed directly to the child.
I think she is to late now, the boy is almost a adult what will she get.
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.
In most states, no. The statute of limitations in most states require that child support be requested before the child reaches the age of majority. If you are past the age of majority, your mother cannot request child support anymore.
The child never "takes over." The CP has a claim to any and all unpaid child support (except for amounts owed to the State as reimbursement for assistance issued) until it's paid.
Yes, as an adult you can sue a noncustodial parent for back child support. However it is a different story if the noncustodial parent has never been ordered to pay child support. You can still sue them for a percentage of their assets. I am currently working on a case in which my client is sueing his father for 15 years of back child support. Any divorce lawyer can handle this case for you.
Each state's laws are different. MOST states have their code of laws online. Usually there are links to that state's Bar Association. * If there was not a court order of child support issued before the minor reached the age of majority then there are not grounds nor procedures for a recovery suit.
No, you had until your 19th birthday to file. Are you sure your mother never got any? A lot of relationships with mothers are being destroyed when adult children learn they were lied to.
Yes a child can sue a parent for unpaid child support if there was a child support order.
Usually it's 21. Generally it will be the legal age of majority as established by the state where the minor resides. The determination of the date when the child support terminates should be included in your original or amended support order If you still are not certain, contact the attorney who handled the case or the court clerk where the order was issued. NEVER cease support payments unless you are absolutely positive of the legal status of the order.
Child support is to be paid by the biological parent. If you can prove that you are not the parent, or the adoptive parent, you should not be required to pay child support. You have to prove that to a court, and it does not matter that you have never seen the child.
No. Georgia does not have a provision for retroactive child support. Child support begins from the date the court enters the order. There is, however, a provision in the law that permits the custodial parent (not the child) to seek reimbursement for "past due expenditures". This is limited to the amount actually spent in caring for the child, though.
State laws vary, and in the ones that allow it , there is a pretty narrow statute of limitations.Please seek professional advice in your state.
Child support may or may not be received, but it will still be owed regardless. Child support is never erased from the books until it is paid, assuming it is paid, even after the child becomes an adult. If the abuser is in jail and unable to pay, the tab will still continue to add up, but there is no assurance that it will someday be paid.
No. You have been an adult for some time and the statute of limitations has long passed.
That depends on what problems the child have. In some cases it has to be paid when they are adults because they can never take care of themselves.The duty to support a disabled adult child is an extremely complicated issue and the laws vary from state to state.
