    Default Statute of Limitations to Sue for Child Support

    My question involves child support in the State of: Texas

    A girl my husband dated 18 years ago got pregnant. There was no paternity test done, but the child was acknowledged as my husband's - the child has always used my husband's last name, the child refers to him as dad and has been included in my husband's family throughout the years. The ex-girlfriend has never sued for child support -granted, my husband could have done more for the child. The child turns 18 this year and out of the blue, the ex is threatening to sue him for child support and arrearages.

    Question: Can she sue him for child support now after all these years? Is there a statute of limitation in Texas for this?

    In Texas you can only do back pay up to 48 months (4 years). I know because I did the maximum on my sons father
