My mother had an open child support case against the NCP, with court orders stating that he pay weekly. He would pay, and then stop in a constant pattern and eventually he just stopped altogether. The Child Support office claimed to be unable to locate him so he basically got away with not paying for years. An arrearage of $20k+ exists now, and my mother has passed. I am now 20 yrs old and am pursuing the arrearages on behalf of myself and her estate. Due to him "coming out of hiding" after her passing, I was able to use some information and find an address.
The child support obligation is to the minor child, so the arrearages are due to the minor child. Have you contacted child support enforcement since your mother has passed away? The arrears are still owed to the child, even after the child becomes emancipated. And the arrears don't go away because your mother passed away.
