I am not an expert, however I am dealing with potential arrears dated back to 2012. It hasn't been heard yet so I can only talk about what I have read.

My understanding is that there is no statute of limitations on support. The reasons cited is because it would encourage payers to underpay in hopes of getting away with it.

It is, however, scrutinized and there are many things to consider when looking at the years past.

Go to CanLii.org, type in the case name box (it's the middle box),
DBS v. SRG; LJW v. TAR then hit enter. Only 1 case will come up and that is the case law you want to read (it's long), but it explains what the court should look for in relation to arrears.
