Closed Childsupport Case and Arrears
My husband's exwife closed their childsupport case in California, when she and their children moved to our town here in South Carolina. This happened about 2 years ago. He pays her support monthly, but if she gets mad at him she threatens to reopen the old case for the old arrears. Can she do this?

Re: Closed Childsupport Case and Arrears
It depends on how she "closed" the case and what the applicable law is in CA. In SC, if she dismisses the arrearage, then she cannot go back after it at a later date. However, the law could be very different in CA, and you should contact an attorney there to find out the details. If you need more information, you can visit my family law blog (www.SCFamilyLaw.com) or our website (www.StevensFirm.com). I wish you the best of luck.
