    Question Can my mom collect back child support?

    My mom filed for child support when I was 16 after my father got out of jail. her and my father never married nor did they live together. He is now back in michigan where him and my mother both reside. I am now 24 and my mother has not seen one payment. I was wondering now that I'm an adult does he still have to pay? Since he is working doesn't the state garnish his wages? Would he be able to get out of paying child support?

    If the statute of limitations runs on the arrearage, then he wouldn't have to pay. Your mother has a few years left - she should consider seeking to collect the arrearage, if she wishes to do so.
