- I paid 22k in child support for the first 8 years of my daughter's life when she lived with her mother. This was a Canadian Support Order. My ex moved to California.

- I raised my daughter for the next 8 years and received nothing. I finally opened up a support case but when it made it to court in California my ex asked my daughter to come back to her ending the court case.

- My ex just filed for support against me in California.

- The years I supported my daughter I was below average income.

What are my options? Is there such a thing as non-custodial parents seeking retroactive child support. I don't really want to sue I just don't think it's fair that I have to pay again after 8 years of struggling to raise my daughter with absolutely no help.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thank You in advance.
