Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.
Did you ever file a paternity suit against him and have a judge order him to pay a certain amount of support?
If not, then it is too late to do so now as the statute of limitations expired when the child turned 18. You could only file for child support up until then.
So if you didn't pursue your original case to a judgment and order against the father, then unfortunately you couldn't do so now.
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
Ok, unfortunately if you didn't pursue it to a point where a judge actually issued an order, then it would be too late to do so now...
I am sorry that the news isn't better.
I just wanted to touch base with you and check in.
Did you have any further questions I can help with?
