Repayment of ct welfare aid

Hi, My financee inherited a small sum from a friend. He just received a letter

from the state of CT stating that from this inheritance he was responsible for

repaying the welfare aid that his exwife incurred after the divorce. At this

time, he was paying child support, was never late or missed a payment and

was paying medical for his childrern. His exwife went on welfare to go back to

school. There was no alimony involved in the divorce decree. The statutes in

CT are 17b-93 and 17b-94. Is my fiancee responsible for this repayment,

which amounts to over $16,000.00? Thank you so much for your time and

advice. Joan
