Greetings. First, I hope that you are currently paying your child support and arrearage on time monthly. As to your question, no the court does not usually request that you pay the entire arrearage at the final hearing. The judge may increase the amount of the arrearage you are paying every month, but it is also likely that you will continue to pay the arrearage (and interest on the same) over the next 13+ years. Best of luck and good luck paying your child support!
