How long should I keep the receipts showing the child support I paid?

FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY FORT MYERS | DIVORCE ATTORNEY FORT MYERS

It depends. If child support was already established through the courts, and let’s say, ten years ago, then you will need to keep the receipt for at least the past ten years because the court can go all the way back to when that judgment was made to enforce that child support order. Now, if it was never established through the courts, then the most that the court can go back is up to two years, but again, I would always encourage you to keep every single receipt that you’ve made for support payments, as well as, any payment that you’ve made towards the child, so that way you are properly covered and protected in the future, if anything were to happen.
