Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
If you'll let me know what your question is, I'll try to provide an answer. Thanks.
Is there currently a child support order in place?
In 1997 the Georgia legislature added OCGA 9-12-60(d), which removed the statute of limitations for enforcing child support arrears. If your order was issued AFTER July 1, 1997 then you should have the right to seek recover of all of these funds. But, if your order is older than that, there are limitations.

Since there is a court order that the paying parent is in violation of, you should be able to file a motion to hold her in contempt of court for failing to pay as ordered, and ask the judge to require her to pay you as ordered. The judge should take steps to enforce the order as entered.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
