Collecting Back Child Support?

I'm 28 and have 2 brothers 27 and 29. We all have the same father. My mother raised us in Illinois. My dad owes 82000 in back support, but Indiana couldn't find him. That was where the order was so they transferred it to Illinois, but now Illinois said he doesn't owe it, but Indiana said he does. My dad is doing good and my mother is still trying to get out of debt from raising us. Could anyone help me out? Illinois also said your kids are grow up what do you want us to do. I have a kid and my son gets his money every week so if I stop paying for it when he hits 18 mine will be forgotten.

Unfortunately, old unpaid child support cases, although still legally valid, are of little interest to the state agencies who have the responsibility to collect. Frankly, all child support state agencies are simply overwhelmed with the many current cases that need attention.

Assuming that you are not interested in a relationship with your father, you can consider legal action against him for the unpaid child support, however, this involves retaining as attorney and paying an upfront fee (often several thousand dollars) to even file an initial court action.

If you know your father has good financial resources, you can request your attorney arrange a meeting of all parties to try to obtain a settlement to avoid further legal fees and costs.
