Q: I was just contacted by a 53 year old who very well might be my daughter. The 53 year old woman’s mother never told me about the child & never went to court requesting child support from me. Am I financially responsible retro actively?
A: The short answer is no – if there was never a court order of child support, she has not she can enforce in court. Moreover, if paternity was never properly established, then you aren’t even the “child’s” legal Father. Call a Westchester Child Support Attorney for more info.
