    Child support

    What are the laws as far as back pay in the state of WV? My childs father is refusing to pay child support. I have filed but no hearing has been scheduled yet. He is saying he will not have to pay back pay. Also, he has 2 other children he pays support to. Will this decrease the amount I get?

    Whether you get retroactive child support is up to the judge. Usually if awarded, my understanding is it will be from when you filed. Support going to other children will likely be considered in the award.
