there is no statute of limitations for collecting past-due child support. I have had clients who's partner dodged child support for decades, then suddenly started getting checks in the mail because the past-due support was being garnished from the other parent's social security retirement income. If you know where the wife works, you can start garnishment immediately. The money is still owed to you.
Let me know if I may be of further assistance. Thank you.
there is no retroactive adjustment. However, you obviously have at least one minor child in the household, so you can still get an adjustment based on the present circumstances.
Glad to help :)
