Hello. I currently receive court-ordered child support in the state of TN. The father is on disability; therefore, the child support comes from the Social Security Administration and is 1/2 the amount he receives each month. The father also pays $50 towards a $20,000+ arrearage. Obviously, at $600 a year, this won't be paid off anytime soon. My son is currently 15 years old. What happens when my son turns 18? Will he receive this arrearage amount? Will I receive it for my son? Will it just be "written off"? Can the father be ordered to pay more than $50 a month towards this? Yes, he's on disability now and is not able to work; however, he lives a comfortable life, much more comfortable than us. I would love to know that when my son turns 18, he has this money coming to him. It sure would help with college if he chooses to go or with his living expenses if he chooses not to go. Thanks.
