Child Support

November 13, 2019

I was supporting my children by myself before I filed for child support. Can I get child support for that period of time?

When you file for child support, you have the right to seek support for the past four years leading up to the date you file for child support. However, you and the other parent must have been living separately for that period of time and you must have had physical custody of the child during that period.1
