This assumes that you're asking about retroactive support (support due for a period prior to the entry of the first order), not unpaid support that accrued as a result of a order. Retroactive support is typically awarded (or not) to the entry of the original order of support. At that time, the court must give the debtor credit for voluntary contributions to support provided during the period covered by the retroactive support award.
