    When I was growing up, my dad didn't pay child support, but he paid $20,000 per year for mine and my sister's private school education. He argued that this WAS child support, but I argue that it wasn't as it didn't help mum raise us (we could have gotten a free education at a state school). I can't just go to dad now and say that he owes me 'child support' for all those years. As it turned out he did help me out financially with my house purchase, but that's nothing to do with child support.
    Thank you I thought this was the case I was just asking for DP.

    Short answer... No. Unless the farther should be paying cs still and then if the inheritance is part of his tax return it'll be part of the cs assessment

    My dad had to keep paying child support to my mum until my brother turned 18.
    Also, I think if the child is under 21 and studying full-time child support has to still be paid (please don't quote me on that though)

    Short answer: no. He can't try to get money off his dad now in lieu of child support for himself not through the chil d support agency anyway. He could get legal advice about pursuing privately
