Not if they've been adopted, unless there are arrears pre-adoption. Is he going to appeal the adoption?

No they can't if the children have been adopted. Adoption effectively is a legal rebirth, and the children and he are legal strangers. They have no connecrion and therefore he can't possibly be liable for anything post adoption. Perhaps if he owed money before the adoption he can be compelled to pay it now but I have no idea about that or how that would work, as I don't have any experience with CSA.
