Q: Can a court order back child support over an existing court order?

My ex wife and I had an agreement in our decree that I would pay any child care expenses related to babysitting. He's getting older now and we both agree that a regular child support payment is needed. Can the court order back child support over the existing court order?

Timothy Denison

Could they? Yes. Would they, most likely not. Best practice would be for you and ex to sign an agreed order as to the new terms. The courts generally do not tamper with agreements of the parties unless they are patently unfair.

Q: If I am the noncustodial parent and cs had never been enforced would I be held liable for rearages if cps got involved?

We have always been on mutual terms and I have paid my share of health and wellness and provided necessities for the child.

If you have been paying child support to the other parent, ensure you have statements of proof (bank statements, money transfer app statements, etc). A parent is finically responsible for their child. CPS involvement does not change that.
