Thanks for the question. You absolutely can pursue your child support. In order to be able to collect, there needs to be an existing court order for child support. The age of the order would need to be discussed since many states do have a statue of limitation, though many (or most) do not. This means that in some cases, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve waited to get what you deserve. The order’s jurisdiction and where the parties live would also need to be reviewed and discussed with you while reviewing your case. Lastly, the “collectability” of the case needs to be determined. We would need to find assets or income to collect from assuming nothing could be arranged on a voluntary basis with the absent parent. The great news, is our team of investigators and child support specialists have many years of experience and can quickly determine if we would be able to assist.
If there is an established order awarding support, please consider giving us a call to discuss the case. We can then determine if we are able to move forward and try to help.
