Gardner, MA asked in Child Support for Puerto Rico

Q: My son is 31 yrs old and I still owe him back child support, do I still need to pay the back child support?

My son stopped going to school when he was 13 yrs old. When He was 16-19 yrs of age, he was living with me, but child support continued going.

A: Greetings:

You can notify the court or the agency that has jurisdiction over the child support case so they can ankowlege that you were providing and caring for your son with the proper evidence. Your son has to come forward and certify that this indeed happened. You may have to request an evidentiary hearing.
