It actually goes farther than that. It can allow for retroactive modification under various circumstances. It can allow for modification of a prior order that was or should have been temporary pending the return of the military party.

The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (as it has been known since 2003) does apply to child support.

The Servicemembers may request a stay of 90 days, as well as further stays. A default order cannot be entered without giving 90 days for an attorney to be brought in.

If I'm not mistaken, the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act does not apply to child support cases.

Let's wait and see how the OP answers the questions, shall we?

Perhaps you can figure out why they were asked

My husband contacted the child support agency and they stated that although he was overseas serving our country his mother sign for the letter that they had sent him notifying him of her attempt to get child support. My husband had to children and thought that the payment were being paid to them. What can he do? about this because he's still not sure if he's the father and the mother does not want to give him a dna test.
The mother has to agree to DNA testing whether she likes it or not if she wishes to claim he is the father.

Have HIM file a paternity action in court and bring the matter to a head is my advice. DNA testing will be ordered and that should settle the issue for once and for all.

Re: Not sure if he's the father

The timing here might be critical.

A few questions:

Is he military?

When was his mother served?

How old is the CS order?

Any idea why his mother didn't tell him she'd signed for something?

Re: Not sure if he's the father

I wish to inform you that your husband may inform the child support agency that the paternity of the child had not been proved. Further, he was overseas serving the country and had no information about this child. If the matter is not resolved with the mother of the child and the child support agency then he may file petition in the court for dna test to establish paternity of the child. If he is declared the father by the court then he will have to pay child support from the date as ordered by the court. Normally, no past child support is to be paid prior to the date paternity is established. Further, the court keeps in view the best interest of the child. The court will consider all the facts and decide the matter.
