The father pays child support based on figures the mother gave the court. Mother claimed she paid daycare for years but never had the child in daycare. Can the father get the money back that he paid into child support to the mother for childcare expenses?
Can the mother be penalized for lying to the court?
Actually there is case law on this exact fact pattern. Fraud is involved here and you should be able to get the money back.
