Is child support allowed to take inheritance money?

| Nov 18, 2016 | Uncategorized

Q: My father passed away and left me some money and I just want to know if I am pursuing it in vain meaning is the state going to try to take it in order to satisfy a debt owed? 

A: David’s Answer:  If you owe child support arrears, and you come into money from any source & deposit it into a bank account, that money can be seized. If the money is given to you via Probate Court, they may even have a mechanism in which they check whether you owe any back support – but that question would need to be posed to a Wills/Trusts attorney. Call a Bronx Child Support attorney for more info.
