Can I sue my daughter's father for back child support? My daughter is 17 years old and he has never paid me one cent for her support. I never went to court before to get support, but I feel he owes me now.

See NRS 125B.030. Yes, you can make the request -- but if there was no prior child support order you will probably be limited to 4 years back support, plus future support until emancipation. If there WAS a prior order, and it is just unpaid, you are entitled to a judgment for all past due sums, plus interest, plus penalties. See http://willicklawgroup.com/child-support/ and http://willicklawgroup.com/interest-penalties/.
