What is the name of your state? Alabama. A paternity test recently revealed that I am not the father of my 17 year old daughter whose mother I divorced 10 years ago. I have paid child support to the mother. For all the years that I paid child support, do I get money refunded back to me? And is the child's real father responsible for paying back child support? Also, would the mother pay back the money paid to her for child support?
