Q: I owe $ 9000.00 in child support I just locate my daughter after 17 years only to find out she’s been raised with foster parents since 2005 my daughters biological mother hasn’t had custody since 2005. I spoke to her several Times she asking me to pay that child support she doesn’t know I found out my daughter hasn’t been in her custody do I still have to pay her arrears?
A: Generally child support arrears cannot be vacated. To give it a shot, you’d need to file a petition to terminate arrears & argue it would be unjust for the arrears to be enforced. Schedule a consult with a White Plains Child Support Attorney for more info.
