Hello Fari,

you cannot ask for arrears for child support because the father couldn't be expected to put money aside for 12 years if he was never sued for child support.

But of course you can start claiming child support now. The amount will be based on the father's income. The easiest way would be to contact him and ask him for his income statements. If he doesn't cooperate, we will take it from there. You can contact me again anytime.

Welcome to Germany and good luck!
