If there is no current older, then you won't get arrears. You can get support from now until your child turns 21.
Child support is only retroactive to the date that you file the application.

If you never had a child support order, then you can't be awarded arrears. By statute, child support is only awarded retroactive to the date you file for it. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
