Legal Question in Family Law in North Carolina


My ex husband owed back child suppot. I had a judgement against him thru the courts. In the mean time he has died. Who if anyone is liable to now pay the back child support (judgement)? Does it get taken out of his estate? He was remarried and had a child from that marriage. Can his wife sell the house without paying the judgement? What rights do my children have in reguards to the estate?

Re: estate

I don't know the specifics of the law of your state, but the estate should be liable. It is a debt of the estate. As far as the house is concerned, that would depend on whether or not it was his property passed on through the estate. Make sure you put in a claim with the Court handling the matter.
