@adelaida16,
He doesn't have to call anyone to pay. He can just pay you. What would happen if YOU called and complained about his arrearages is a different question and would depend on a lot of things, including the State you reside in.

@adelaida16,
Sorry, I misread your post, thinking your "boyfriend" was also the father of your children and he owed the money to you.

It's not a crime to owe money. In some states it is quasi-criminal offense to fail to pay child support. Since his kids are grown, he would not seem to have an obligation to currently support them.

Call a lawyer. Chances are the State will take whatever money they can get (which might be pennies on the dollar) and then drop all claims against him.
