Can you get back Child Support?

I know this man that had a heart attack while traveling in his Corvette. He smokes & drinks. His life is the bar. That & playing video games. He finally got on disability. He has a handycap sticker to park right by the bar's closet door! He lives in a new house. When he needs money like for new Corvette tires he asks his mom. Who can't afford them. Besides the bar, drinking & smoking & a live in girlfriend that's his world. Not his kids. His X knows he's better off. Plus he got a pay off large sum of money for back pay to the SSI. office. He's suppose to pay back that sum to his former job. He quit. His mom feels he should keep both large sums. His X wants the $11 Grand due her! He won't pay. Can she get it? He told her he was dying & she let him go. He agreed to pay it out of his estate when he dies. But he is doing great & living high on the hog now! Can she get her fair share? Poor Kids too. They're all adults now.

  • Hard to say if he is dying and all the children are over 18. Wouldn't hurt for her to take the case to the child support office and try!

  • Yes, she can get it! At least in the state of Illinois. My uncle never paid a dime of child support for his son. His ex wife sued him for back child support when the kid was in his 20s. She won. She accepted a settlement for 30K. The back child support went to her- for footing the bill by herself for 18 years, but she ended spending most of it on her son's college tuition.
