Your questions is unclear. Do you mean that the child support has been paid to the Florida State Disbursement Unit? Who paid? How long has it been? Is there a case number assigned to this account? What type of case is it... Paternity through Department of Revenue, Private Paternity case or Divorce? Please feel free to contact me for additional information 727-835-6595

Yes, she can file a paternity action against him and he can be made to pay child support. We usually can impute at least minimum wage to him and calculate child support if he refuses to get a job.
