Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

Hi, if the parent in this case was never formally listed on the birth certificate and was never formally found to be the father (there was no paternity order), then child support begins from date paternity is formally established. There are no arrears to pursue because before that fact there was no formal parental relationship and therefore no obligation to pay support.

Sincerely,

Dimitry, Esq.
