This is a strange confusing question.
Once your child has reached over 16? Is that when child support is stop being paid? Can your child file for the repayments afterwards when they are no longer in there care even say if they are an adult? If the adult hasn't been paying for all these years (because he was jobless).
Say the parent has just received a huge payout kinda thing..
Sorry if this makes no sense

My DP's dad never paid child support while he was growing up. Now he has inherited a lot of money. He was wondering if he could somehow get any of that money? His mum doesn't care about it because child support leaves men with no lives

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.

Did he owe the mum child support and never payed it? I'm sure she could get that now.
If not maybe get your dp to speak to a solicitor, I guess he can sue his dad since he never supported him growing up but can now afford to. I don't see why not, just because he's an adult he's still his son. The question is do you want to go down that road, it may cost you more than you get?
