How Long Does A Person Have To Cash Child Support?

oklahoma city divorce lawyerQuestion:

I issued my last child support payment to my ex-wife several months ago that she has yet to cash.

How long can the child support recipient legally hold the support check before cashing?


I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Oklahoma child support laws where I am licensed to practice.

The child support statutes in my state do not indicate a time frame on how long a person has to cash a child support payment.

If there is not a time frame in the child support laws of your state, there are other areas of law that would regulate check cashing. More specifically, the laws on commercial paper in your state could also regulate how long for which a check is negotiable.
