Recently a friend of mine's ex-wife passed away. He had been paying her $725.00 a month for support of which $125.00 of that was to cover back support. This pass December she passed away, so he contacted the support agency to inform them. He was told he had to submit proof of her death and that they would still be garnishing his pay, but would hold the money in escrow. Last week he received a letter from the county prosecutors office to inform he would still have to pay the back support which amounts to $8000.00, even though she is dead. In the letter it stated that the money would be going to the Ohio general fund, is this legal?? I can understand if she had been getting money from the state, but she wasn't.
