The best way to obtain information about your divorce is to go to the courthouse, pull the file and see what is in it. All you need is your name and case number. In some counties you can go to the superior court website, and using your case number you can see if a judgment has been filed, as well as obtain other information.
For a specific opinion regarding your individual circumstances, I suggest that you consult with an experienced family law lawyer. Experience is not expensive, it's priceless!

Mr. Levy is right, you need to get an attorney involved in this. Without more information and a review of whatever documentation you have, it is not possible to advise you. You really have been doing without child support for 14 years? If you would like to bring in whatever paperwork you have for a free 1/2 hour consultation, my office is in Walnut Creek.
