I have a very complicated and twisted situation. I have been paying child support for years now for my soon to be 20 year old daughter. About a year ago my daughter told me that her mother had her adopted by her step father when she was 9. Low and behold I needed a copy of my daughters birth certificate recently for some family court cases and when I sent off I received a letter from vital records that they did a due diligent search for my daughter and no record was found. I immediately called vital records and the lady who answered the phone was very nice and gave me more information than she should have and it turns out that this did take place without my knowledge. Since the stepfather owes the support and not me legally can I get my money back or sue child support for my money?
