Process to Forgive Child Support Arrears
by Anonymous from Florida
I am no longer under a court order to pay child support, but their are arrears on record with the child support office.
What is the process that the custodial parent must follow to have the past due arrears forgiven?
Answer to Florida Child Support Question
I am not aware that there is any process to forgive child support arrears. There is no statute of limitations in the state of Florida for child support arrears.
If you're saying that you do not owe this child support, and the custodial parent agrees that is true, you may be able to petition the court and/or the Department of Revenue Child Support Enforcement to end all enforcement actions.
However, if the custodial parent ever collected any type of services from the state of Florida, such as Temporary Aid for Needy Families (TANF), you will be required to repay the state of Florida.Notice:
