    Answered . not sure that i agree. if the parents were never married to each other, then it is a parentage case. if he is not yet legally the father, and if he has been hiding, then a parentage case could be filed now. 750 ilcs 45/8b. the court can order child support before the date of the service of summons in limited cases. this may be one of those cases. 750 ilcs 45/14b.
