Back child support is money owed to you from the date of petition that has not been paid. For example, if a petition for child support is filed Jan 1, 2016 and child support is not set or finalized until July 1, 2016, the back support (retroactive support) will be for the previous 6 months. This also includes late or missed child support payments that have been ordered by a court. Parents who are late or have missed child support payments must pay the debt in full, including any applicable fees and interest charges.
