My boyfriend got locked up in June for child support. He didn't know that this child existed and hadn't signed no papers acknowledging it. How can they make him pay 500 back child support to get out if he didn't know and paternity hasn't been established. Actually it is the state that's trying to make him pay them back because the female started receiving TANF.

No, your facts as recounted here must be wrong, i.e., if paternity
has never been established, there is no way that the Commonwealth
could make your boyfriend pay anything back that had been paid
in behalf of this child, whether TANF or anything else.
