if a person has been paying child support for my 2 children for years, now he says there are not his and do not want to pay anymore, also requesting a DNA test, if he is not the father do i owe him all of his monies he has paid
greensboro, North Carolina
i have tried nothing, i have just got increases from the child support bureau for the amount of child support being paid i just have been letting him pay he never tried to fight it until this last increase. the children are not his at least one of them i am for sure.
Thanks for your question. He has to request this through the court. The court may not allow this at all.If he has previously been named legal father then he may have waived right to challenge here. You need to have state child support file on him for contempt here. you can sing up with them for $25. Just google your state child support here and you can sign up online. since you have a support order you may already be a client. It doesn't work the way he wants here. He may have waived any right to challenge and this may be moot issue. If you have a support order he is in contempt here until it is changed. You can pursue your money here and in all likelihood he will still be on the hook unless the court decides otherwise.And no he doesn't get any money back as that is water under the bridge. I wish you good luck with all of this here.Sign up here..http://www.dhhs.state.nc.us/dss/cse/index.htm
