My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. Thank you for your question and for using justanswer.com. Give me a bit and I will draft you an answer.
Did you ever get a Court order for child support? Child support collection is unique. You never lose your right to collect it, even if the missed payments were decades ago. If you got an order for child support back then, you can still collect on past due child support although the support ended when the child turned age 18. If there is not order from then, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to recoup the child support that would have been due. Since the child is past the age of majority and this case is so old, it is unlikely you will be able to collect anything if you never got a court order for child support. So to answer your question, with an order and a past due amount for child support, you could still be reimbursed for the past amount due if you file a civil suit for the past due amount, with no such amount, you will be unable to collect.
