The person in question is now 25. The father recently found out about her and a few months ago confirmed paternity. The mother now wants to collect back child support. She never took the father to court or wanted to do a paternity test. Can she collect after 25 years?
Family Law Attorney
It is too late to seek a new child support order. However, if a support order was entered there is no longer a statute of limitations on ENFORCEMENT of an order that was previously entered.
