Retroactive Child Support for Uninformed Father

If paternity was recently established (child is 7) but father was never informed of pregnancy, what is the likelihood of a retroactive support order being issues?

It depends on the statute under which the case is filed. I am assuming that you were not married to the mother and the case would be filed under the Juvenile Code. Therefore, liklihood of retroactive support is 100% as the statute provides that child support may be retroactive to include the cost of the mother’s pregnancy and child birth expenses.
