how many years back can the florida court go when ordering child support?
my son has a 31/2 yr old daughter out of wed lock- they seperated before the child was born and she has kept contact limitted -going so far as to say he wasn't the father- he did a dna test which answered that question- now there is a court order for support which I think is GREAT- one of my questions now is - how far back can the court go when determining arears? While I feel that he responsible for her from the moment of birth weather or not she is being fair but I am his mom and I know how hard it will be for him to play catch up-we are in the process of asking the court for a review of the case and to establish a visitation order(which opens up even more questions) any help with this will most appericated- Thank you to all in advance

dont make excuses for your baby boy, he knew she was pregnant and just would rather think she cheated on him then step up and request the DNA in the first place.
TIME; they can go back to the date of birth or the date of filing the papers, depends upon the state and the case details.
every case is different, and although federal law for child support are strong, some states adopt their own meaning of the law, so the guidelines are different (slightly) state to state.
of course the court will review the case, thats manditory.
VISITATION; as for visitation, he is entitled to it, unless deemed unfit or dangerous to the child. grandparents do not legally have visitation rights; none that i have ever seen.
CHILD SUPPORT; todays courts goes by BOTH parents incomes, thus, both parents support the child.

Normally any back support or prior maintenance as it is most often called is requested in the initial court paperwork. The mother cannot get something she did not request in her petition. Visitation and child support are separate issues and do not hinge on one another. Child Support can be modified or looked at for a change by filing a Motion to Modify. If an order for child support has been entered, your son is responsible for what the court ordered at that time unless it states that an issue was left open for a future decision. Otherwise, he is probably already paying what he is supposed to pay.Source(s): former child support enforcement agent.. 25 yrs. experience.

3 years, but you must have a reason to get the money and show cause that it was needed and not fraud on your part.
