I have a child support order for my son, who is 12, going on 13 in october. His father was EXTREMELY abusive. he burned down our house with our son while he was in it, and paid $370 total in child support before he was officially "charged" with child support in 2011 (born in 1999). Is there a way I can collect from this man for the previous 11 years?
I am putting Illinois as the state as this is where is happened, but we live in FL now.

My posting is based upon the representations made by you in your posting on this website. Yes, in my opinion, you can collect the back child support from your child's father, if he has a bank account with money, or other assets of value. You should hire a lawyer to help you with this, if you have not already done so. There are additional comments and suggestions that I can make.
