Back child support


#1

Dear Gramma:

Greetings. The answer is yes, you can go back for the actual expenses of the child, but not “child support.” You can also go for back child support if it was in a written agreement, such as a separation agreement, between the parties. Someone needs to immediately file for child support though to be able to back-date the child support to the date of filing the motion or action. Thank you and good luck.

Is it possible to go for back child support even if it wasn’t court ordered?
