I filed for child support because my child's father has not been financially assisting me at all. I found out through the department of social services that I will not be awarded any back child support. I have meticulous records of the items that he said he would pay. Am I able to take him to court? Where should I start? So I need to seek legal representation or is this something I can handle myself?
The amount and applicable time for back child support awards are state specific issues. You need to consult with a local family law attorney as soon as possible.
I recommend that you consult with an experience Charleston child support attorney. You probably will not be able to recover for any child support for the date before you filed with the court.
