Q: What is a Retroactive Support?
A: A party can apply to the Court for Child Support that should have been payable in the past, but was not paid. Generally, the Courts will go back 1-3 years. The Court has the ability to Order support retroactively beyond three years, but that is usually contingent on the "blameworthiness" of the payor. Applications for Retroactive Support can be made regardless of past Court orders (unless a retroactive claim has been heard for that same time period already) and regardless of previous payments.
