The Question:

Can my ex take me to court for child support years after we agreed, in court, to not pay? We agreed that no child support will be paid in custody agreement. Both of us have remarried and had kids. She is a stay at home mom but threatens to take me to court for child support.

RJ Says:

Child support is always modifiable. Even Court Orders that neither parent owes the other are modifiable. However, she can never go backwards. Arizona does not allow retroactive child support modifications. So, if she believes she is entitled to a modification, every month she waits is a month she loses.
