SQL Date Format

Hello Experts,

I have a SQL SELECT with the following condition:
...AND paymentDate >= '6/20/2012' AND paymentDate <= '7/4/2012'

paymentDate is actually a varchar.

The issue is that my statement does not returns the correct data, and after some digging, I have found that the values in paymentDate are sometimes 2010-04-30 and other times 7/13/2010.

I know that within my SQL SELECT I can take care of it by using I think CAST, but I not exactly sure how to go about doing it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
