Can you first let me know if there's also a father?
You can also get support from the mother.
The Court will order that she pay support.
But it will not be the full table amount. The court will apportion what each parent should be paying you.
I suggest you demand that she start paying you retroactively and threaten court first and if that doesn't work then you start an application for support.
Yes she does. She has always had a legal obligation to support her children.
It depends on the facts but the court will want to know why you didn't pursue this before.
At the most they will go back three years but if you have no good reason for not seeking support before she can argue that this is now going to cause her to undergo undue hardship.
The court may agree to have her pay some but not all of what she will have to pay going forward. There are no guarantees.
Then you can explain all of this to the court. It is quite believable of course and 2 and especially 3 are very important. 3 is quite compelling so you should likely succeed at least partially.
