I have two children ages 12 and 10. I never filed for child support and their biological father is on the birth certificate. If I file for child support now, would he owe from the time they were born?
Under most state laws, he would likely be required to pay child support (assuming your petition is granted) as of the date in which your petition was filed. Research your state statutes regarding child support laws to find out the time in which the court affixes the obligation to pay.
