My question is regarding child support. I have a 22 year-old

Customer Question

My question is regarding child support.

I have a 22 year-old daughter and I owe back child support. Both my daughter and I believe that it is likely that I am not her biological father. If we were to get tested now and that test showed that I was not her father would that affect the child support?

Yes, that information would entitle you to petition the court to terminate your child support obligation, and you may ask to have your arrearage eliminated. The court, in its discretion, could order the arrearage to be eliminated.
