A friend lives in Us and wants to claim Uk pension. His son

Resolved Question:

A friend lives in Us and wants to claim Uk pension. His son is 39 when the son was born the mother refused marriage and claimed child support for 18 years . She declared he was not helping to get the support. In fact the child was cared for by the father for numerous visits and bought clothes and shoes etc and food when visiting. Will her earlier claims cause him to have problems if he claims a pension?

I'm not sure that the answer is correct because I read on UK web site that there is no statute of limitations for past child support payments and that there is a reciprocal agreement with the US. Wouldn't this be enforced for the govt to claim back some of the money that was paid by them to the mother?

hi

it is only in the last decade that the csa has been active and the state has been involved in collecting child maintenance - prior to that child maintenance was a purely civil issue and any court order that may or may not have been made is no longer in any way enforcable
