  • Wait, are the children over 18? If so, you won't get any current CS. Was there an order? If not, you won't get anything at all.

  • In the 80s? I don't know if you will get anything now. Why did you wait until your kids were grown?

  • call the local bar association explain the situation they can send you in the right direction. However since it's been so long, you may not get anything.

  • It doesn't sound too good I think it is too late :(
    Just call the CS office in your state and ask them this question.
    Try google...

  • wow that is a long time. If there was an order all that time you are entitled to it. Google family court lawyers in your area. That would be a good place to start. Also try calling the court house to see if they could help you.
