Beaumont, TX asked in Child Custody and Child Support for Texas

Q: My child mother placed me on child support but I never had DNA done or signed acknowledge paper. Do I owe back pay?

My daughter was born in 2009. She found out I work for railroad and has been hounding for back pay since. Once i found out i was immediately involved until mom kept using 700 to see her monthly through money orders so i stopped giving her 700 because i never saw my daughter. I'm afraid to do the DNA because I don't want to psy back pay when I found out it was my daughter in 2014. If I sign up 01/14/19 for child support will I owe? I just want to joint custody and do my part.
