Backdating child support
What does paternity have to do with back (retroactive) child support?In Ohio, Paternity MUST be established before a court or a child support enforcement agency can make a child support order.Mrs Balsamo claims that, following her husband's death, the CSA sent a letter saying: 'Sorry for your loss, please accept this letter as a claim on Ian Sandywell's estate for the outstanding amount of £9,000'.As a family law attorney, I am frequently faced with the question, “May I receive credit for my overpayment of child support?
The person named as the parent has to pay this until they can prove that they’re not the parent.
In addition, in Ohio, a child support order can ONLY BE retroactive if made in conjunction with a determination of paternity. Once paternity is established, how does a court decide whether or not to order retroactive child support? That statute says that a court shall not order retroactive child support if both of the following apply: On the one hand, there is ORC 2105.26 which contemplates a situation where a father, an adult child (any age), and the adult child’s mother all file a joint declaration in probate court alleging that the man is the child’s father and requesting that the probate court issue an order declaring the man to be the adult child’s father.
