It depends on the judge's decree. * That would be determined by the amount of time between the birth of the child and the establishment of parentage and granting of the support order. Most US states have statutes of limitation relating to the time in which child support arrearages are applicable. In most cases the custodial parent will have to sue the obligated parent for any back child support that is recoverable it is rarely granted in the support order.
