– from Jane P. in Pewaukee, WI
My father and mother were divorced when I was 10 years old. My mother received custody of me, and my father was ordered to pay support. He did for several years, then nothing. We hadn't heard anything from him, and the state said they did not know of his whereabouts. I recently turned 18, and my father called. We made small talk, but he offered no explanation about what happened. He did tell me he recently moved back to Wisconsin, and where he is living. My mom struggled to raise me, and told me that she would assign her claim against my father to me. My question is, can I take him to court for child support?
