My boyfriend is in the middle of a divorce he pays what he is ordered to every week. He just paid 12,000 in arrears an still owes 9,000 can he get a passport?
See the State Department's answer here: https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports/information/legal-matters/child-support.html.
Short answer, no. If you owe $2,500 or more you cannot get a passport. It doesn't matter that he has gotten somewhat caught up.
