Thank you for allowing us to assist you with this problem.


Was the paternity test you had performed 10 years ago ordered by the court and/or did you seek to have child support terminated after obtaining the paternity results?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I had it to seek the truth and to have support terminated, I mailed the
Results to the mother and until last week she has not made any attempts
To enforce back support but she is now threatening to collect
Expert:  Daniel Solutions replied 5 years ago.

To make the attempt at seeking a termination of the child support obligation you must file a petition with the court. Read the statute below. However, the problem you face is that the child is now an adult so the court may not terminate the arrears that are owed.
