Very well could be. You haven’t received solid answer in this bc there isn’t a solid answer. It all depends whether your arrearage has been certified. It’s 50/50 whether they catch and keep or release to you.

Q: I paid child support for my son until he turned 19, I l found out that he had an apartment and a job of his own at 17

I was told by the prosecutor that there was nothing I could do about the money I shouldn't have been paying for those two years. I'm still paying for his younger brother. Is that correct and isn't that fraud on the part of his mother for not reporting his departure from her home for two years?

Timothy Denison
Timothy Denison answered on Mar 31, 2020

Depends on whether there was any actual fraud on her part. If there was, you might have an action against the mother.

Q: My wife's ex is suing for $10000 for child support. It was already proved she only owes $1000. Is this perjury in court?

This case was already settled through a mediator that she only owes $1000. She hasn't paid yet because she was out of work. Now he is trying to take her back to court for the $10000 that claims she owes him. My wife has documentation to prove what she has paid.

It’s probably not perjury per se but it is frivolous if in fact there is an agreement that she owes $1,000. Contact a competent divorce lawyer who can help her get this resolved.
