Does the back support show up on your credit report?  Paying it will affect your credit, but there is no way to tell if it will increase it, or decrease it.  If it's one of the only things on your report, paying it may drop your score.  Having zero debt at all, sadly enough, can lower your score lol.  If you have a lot of other credit liabitilies, it may increase your score.  It really just depends person by person, report by report.  I have seen people pay collections and their scores drop, and others pay them, and their scores increase.  At the end of the day, if you do not start paying your back support, the person could get your wages garnished, even if the kids are 18+, and out of school, back support can still be garnished.
