No. However in most cases a child support order can be filed once paternity has been established and said order will become retroactive once the minor reaches the state's legal age of majority.

How do i submit a form for back pay child support if im the child but grew up?

Most states do not allow a child to collect back support as an adult. Although the right to child support belongs to the child, support is payable to the custodial parent to assist in the care and upbringing of that child. If the custodial parent did not receive that support, then she (or he) made contributions that should have come from the other parent, and the right to collect the back support belongs to her.

Can a parent force an underage child to give up baby for adoption?

If a child is underage, there are ways a parent/guardian can force their child to arrange an adoption. However, it is always better to compromise and negotiate with children, even if they are not responsible enough to make that kind of decision, they are entitled to be educated and warned of the possible outcomes and hardships that come with raising their own children. Parents/Gaurdians who want this for your child, make sure that you approach it with love and support while keeping firm on the options that you give. As parent you don't want to make a child resent you. And I'm sure that you can understand how hard it would be to give up a child. Legally though you can not force your child to give up the custody. They are the guardian of their child and not you, no matter how old they are.

If both of the child and other parent are living with you then you can indeed NOT pay child support, but that decision has to come from the Judge. You have the support somehow, and with child living with you and you proving clothing, food, etc to child child then you are doing your part. You need to provide evidence of what you spend to support the child, such as receipts, etc, and also provide evidence that child lives with you, such as video tapes, pictures of child bedroom. If the other parent just left the child with you and took off, then you could file for legal custody, on the basis of child abandonment. You can file both petition at your local family court (Termination of child support, full custody).
