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.

I believe all child support owed is always there and can still be enforced.I know someone who is in their 30's and their mother is now finally getting the child support owed to her out of her ex's social security income.
