This is in Missouri and the father owes 8,000 in back child support for this child.

This has come up in several of my cases where custody has to change for various reasons. Most of the time, the judges in the courts I practice in have determine it to be a credit towards the amount you owe. Since you stated there is $8000 in arrears, you would be "paying" the new amount... Read more »
can it keep them from being placed with their biological father who is a deadbeat and will not take care of them and only wants them for my sister's social security? We have not yet found a will but still have some things to go through.

To get custody of the children you will need to file for a guardianship over the minors. If the father wants the children it would have to be a contested guardianship case. Either way you will need to hire an attorney.

The 20 year old does not live at home. We have never received any report cards on either child. What is the best approach with this?
answered on Jun 16, 2021
You will need to request that support be terminated for the eldest child. You can either do that by affidavit or by motion. That would also mean that child support should be recalculated to reflect one child.
In MO. Child turns 18 in Nov. of his senior year of high school. Child support must be paid until completion of H.S. Does child support contunue through the summer if he is planning on attending college?

In Missouri, if the child plans on attending higher education, support ends at 21 or when they graduate - whichever is earlier.

Do you mean how much it would cost to go to court? Unless there's someone there to adopt the child (or they are considered abandoned, etc.), the court will not terminate his rights just so he doesn't have to pay child support.
We aren’t married. We live together and are planning to separate. He is the father of my child. I have not worked in the last year because he didn’t want me to. I have no income.

Details will matter such as how many children, the special needs of the children, insurance costs for the child, any work related child care costs, if the paying parent has any other child support.
In short you need to consult with a family law attorney about your case to get a reasonable... Read more »

No, child support doesn't begin until a case for it begins. Even then, it's only become retroactive to the date of filing once there's a final judgment.

You can seek expungement, depending on the greater specifics of your history.
And they receive the money but are told by the other person tell them they cannot use it or they will get in trouble. And they want to use it to fix the room for said child so they can get the child back.

You should reach out to family law attorney to rectify the situation and to better assist you.
Is this true?
answered on Feb 11, 2021
It depends on who you called. Is there a current income withholding order in place? I would reach out to DFS to see if they can help. Otherwise, I'd recommend seeking legal counsel from a family law attorney.

To alter support and/or custody, a party needs to submit a modification. So if she has not sought to modify the decree, then you remain under the obligation (or lack thereof) of the original decree.
