    Question What Happens to Arrears when Child Turns 18

    My question involves child support in the State of: Minnesota

    My youngest will be turning 18 soon. He will still be in high school for another year. His father lives in West Virginia. What happens to the arrears once my son is done with school? We are talking over 50k in back child support that is owed.

    The arrears will be there until they are paid.

    By the way, what you are describing MAY be a violation of federal law.

    Talk to a federal prosecutor.

    You need to start enforcing collection ASAP. Because both Minnesota and West Virginia do have SOLs for CS arrearages:
