How long can a child support arrearage be collected?

Child support is considered a unique obligation and its collection may be commenced no later than the tenth anniversary of the child’s graduation from high school. Then when a judgment for child support is obtained, it is subject to regular rules for the length of time for collections of debts. In addition, reporting a child support arrearage that exists does not violate any Fair Debt Collection Act. Payment of arrearage may be negotiated.
