The rules are different in different states. In California I could ask for back child support through the county as my husband's child support payments were garnished from his wages. They would do a check on his finances basically at any time if I wanted to have the child support raised. Look online for your county clerks office, you may be able to find the information you need to file for back support there. You also may be able to find a lawyer who will help you and get the court to make your ex pay your lawyer and court fees since you had to fight to get the money.
