How Do I Reinstate Back Child Support


(Illinois)

My ex was in prison from the time my son was 8 months til my son turned 4. We went through Oklahoma child support to establish support. I agreed to drop back support AS LONG AS he paid his child support and kept it current. That is exactly what I put in my statement. Well obviously he hasn't been paying his child support and I would like to know how I get the back support back. Oklahoma said they sent a waiver that I was suppose to sign and return saying I could not pursue back support in the future but I never received anything like that. Please help! Thanks.

The Courts

Hello,

We have a couple of questions. Was this agreement to stop back arrears done via the courts or via child support enforcement?

Also is the wavered support already showing in the system as being waved? We will await your response.

It was done when we were first getting the order done. We never had to go to court. I lived in Illinois and he was in Oklahoma when all of this was going on. The back support was dropped and does not show up now. If it did he would owe over $9,000.

At this point it appears that you will not be able to receive the back support credited back to you. If it's not showing as arrears through the system, it's pretty much a done deal.

We feel that you should move forward and focus on getting your ex to pay his current support. You gave him once chance, and it seems that he took advantage of it. Again, focus your efforts on getting him to pay his current monthly obligation.

on the child support order it says back support is reserved. What does that mean?

Postpones setting an amount
by: Child Support America Team Member

From our research a reserved child support order postpones setting a specific amount until a further date in the future. It means that if a noncustodial parent signs a stipulation, they can bring it up at a later date.

It can also mean that they can not charge the NCP interest on back child support. So it will be separate from any arrears or back pay they have later on in the future.
