Child Support Arrears Statute of Limitations in l983

In July of 1983, Santa Clara County, Ca registered a

cs order against me that was made in Mendocino Cy 12/72.

All payments were current on that order; but in early l984,

SC County came after me under an order for support they

issued in May, l970; that I believe was nullified by the

reconciliation of my then wife and I in July 70, said

reconciliation lasting until Nov l972 during which time we

lived in Mendocino County; not SC county.. I hold that the

order of 1970 was nullified by reconciliation and that SC

had no business reaching back 14 years to collect in l984?

They are still after me for this, claiming there is no

statute of limitations. Is there?

No arrears were claimed in l983 when they registered the

Mendo Cy support order in SC county.

thank you,
