I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
Indiana will only enforce child support orders for ten years after the child turns 18. However, the statute of limitations is tolled when a person lives out of state. If he's been in Florida from 1969 to 2017, you could still go back to court and file for contempt. It's possible that you could convert the old child support order to a judgement because he's been living out of state, and then try to collect that judgement.
Retirement funds cannot be taken to pay a debt, so it may be more difficult to collect if he is no longer working. You could take any assets he has in the state of Indiana. It may help to talk to a local attorney to see if someone can help you.
