When I Was A Child, The Non-Custodial Parent Did Not Pay The Support He/She Was Ordered To Pay. Can I Collect The Money That Is Owed?

No. Although you are no longer a minor, the child support owed was and continues to be payable to the custodial parent, who was your caretaker during that time. The debt is not to the child but to the custodial parent.
