There is no statute of limitations on child support in this type of case. You will have to track the check down, even if the account is closed the banks have that information in their computer system and you will have to get it from them and even if you can only show it by the account statements it will show the payment, but generally they do indeed have the copies of these checks, but have to look for them on their computer and microfilm files sometimes as well. If you cannot find the proof and you cannot get the state to produce it, then they will not release your passport unless you pay the amount. If the check was never cashed you will have to write the check again. This is the only way you will get your passport reinstated.
