YES! Go to your local court and begin action now. Search to see if you mother did do anything at all. Paperwork may have already been started years ago. The Clerk will find the information for you. They cannot give you legal advice just give you the paperwork. The Friend of the court will deal with your case. I would first seek an attorney in this area and use the contingent fee process. Meaning, the attorney will get a 3rd of what you get in the end. This is the best way to go. Sometimes you may have to pay hourly. Get an experienced lawyer over 5 years in practice in Child support payments. You need someone who will know exactly what to do. Many lawyers will take a case and research the law and then act. Keep that information to yourself. Answer It may be possible if the state does not have SOL pertaining to child support. Attorneys will not accept this type of a case on a contingency basis unlike personal injury suits, there is little guarantee such a lawsuit would be successful. If the mother received any state assistance concerning the child(ren) it is highly likely that any monies recovered would belong to state rather than the adult child, even if the child paid all legal expenses. Such action contains many veritables and will be a complicated and lengthy and expensive process with no guarantees as to the outcome. A "friend of the court" or a Guardian Ad Litem, is a legal representative appointed by the court to represent a minor or an adult who has been declared legally incompetent, it would not apply in a case such as the one cited.
