No I do not have any child support; at one time after the divorce in 2003 I did receive about $156 monthly for both children. However, we both agreed in 2010 that he would take support and have the youngest child, now 17, and I would take the older child, now 22. After that the 17 year old only stayed with him for 2 weeks and I never anything after that.
When I file a petition with the court for child support can I also ask to get get retroactive support since 2010 for the 17 year old? Do I explain that this child only stayed with his father for 2 weeks and I've been taking care of him since 2010?
