Is there a statute of limitations on back child support for the state of Massachusetts?
If I child were now age 20 and had found his father, would he be able to sue for back child support in the state of MA?
Some states if there is a child support order already in place, and there is back child support still owed, it is until the child is 21. However, you need to contact your state directly and ask them. There should be something like Child Support enforcement or something similar in your state. Contact the mayor of your city. Start there.
Yes, because the statute of limitations does not begin to run until the child's 18th birthday, and the statute of limitations for an indebtedness imposed by law is ten years. Moreover, since the defendant has secreted himself if within the Commonwealth, or is outside the Commonwealth, the statute of limitations would be tolled, i.e., not even tick a little bit.
Not if there wasn't a valid order for support entered BEFORE the child turned 18.
No statute of limitations in Indiana for that. Don't know about Massachusetts. I would hope not because of all the years the father had been unresponsible should not affect the rights of the child, or the guardian to sue that person...
