If a person lied to extend their child support could fraud charges be brought?
My question is, do I have a case to show fraud, would this be a civil or criminal and how would I go about filing these charges?

Yes, you may have a case. Generally, child support modifications are not retroactive. There are some exceptions when it comes to emancipation.
Eventually, someone is going to ask you why you didn't find out from your child about school.
In my opinion you may very well have a cause of action against the mother for fraudulently failing to disclose that he was not in school. You should collect all emails and texts about this and see an attorney. I have an office in Toms River by appointment only at 732-503-9070.
By answering this question I am not creating an attorney client relationship with you. This should not be construed as legal advice. You should retain an attorney if you seek legal advice.
