By the way, we both make decent money and I've been paying 100 percent of the rent since we moved in as of May of last year, I don't want anything from him. A Texas court has ruled that a Houston man who is not the father must pay ,000 in child support to the mother of a teenage girl he's only met once.
Florida permits collection of child support before the application was filed.
When determining child support payments in Florida, the court may order retroactive child support payments for the time between the date the parents separated and the date the child support order went into effect.
Gabriel Cornejo, of Cypress, Texas, a father-of-three who is also raising two of his brother's children, says he only found out his ex claimed he was the father of her 16-year-old girl, last year.
But even after a paternity test proved he wasn't the father, Cornejo is still being held liable for unpaid child support because a court says he did not contest the paternity suit when his former girlfriend first submitted it in 2003.
If there was a court order in place while you were still his legal obligation, (prior to turning 18) then he still owes your mother reimbursement for his share of your expenses, which she had to cover.
It is too late to establish a court order, you can only enforce an existing one at this point for your mother to be repaid.
Cornejo, who insists never knew about the girl, set out to meet the now 16-year-old.
The Houston dad, who described the teen as a 'wonderful girl' who was 'very smart' with a 'lot going on for herself', decided to have a DNA test at the urging of his wife Esmeralda Cornejo, and his ex.
But when the results came back, they were negative.
His ex is still demanding that he pays what now totals ,000 for the child, that is not his.
This will usually be the mother of a newborn child or the initial primary carer of an adopted child.
