How long does a non custodial parent have to return legal papers to the Office of the Attorney General pertaining to retro child support?
If you lose your job are on monthly workman compensation for over a year for neck injury how can you get the attorney general in Texas to reduce your child support?
You can request to have your child support lowered due to a changein income at anytime. You will have to file for a review with childsupport recovery or take the case back to …court to get it reduced.
In the US, in many states, the answer is that the SOL is 2 years from the date the client knows or reasonably should have known that the lawyer committed malpractice. This is …different from the usual 2 year statute of limitations as in a car accident where the SOL begins to run from the date of the event. With legal and medical malpractice sometimes the effects of the malpractice are not felt or discovered until more than 2 years from the date the malpractice occurred. It would be unfair to persons if in a situation like that, the 2 year period begins to run from the date the malpractice took place. Think about buying a house and the lawyer makes a mistake in reviewing the title. It could take years before a mistatke like that becomes known. So as soon as it is known or as soon as the person reasonably should have known that the lawyer made the mistake, the usual 2 year statute begins ticking.

Answer If there was never an order for support, it is most likely too late to get one entered at this point. Answer If there was an order entered, I suggest the child co…ntact the Arizona child support agency for an appointment. Bring all the orders, payment records, etc. Be polite but persistent. Good luck! Answer The cutoff was the 19th birthday for a retroactive motion to be filed. Answer The right to collect unpaid child support judgments through one of many runs out at end of the 3 year period from emancipation of last child who was depending on court order unless reduced to written money judgment.
