Greetings, first post. My Brother and I, now 46 and 47 years of age recieved notice that our father had passed away. We were estranged from him for a number of years. In his will it states he is leaving his entire estate to his second wife, and nothing to his children (unless she dies, then we are named as the secondary beneficieries.) Our father never paid a cent of his court ordered child support. My Question is this, Can we, (we meaning my mother, Brother and I) go after the estate for the unpaid child support? Details about the case: I live in Colorado. MY parents Divorce took place in Colorado in 1970. As part of the divorce settlment he was ordered to pay child support for both his children, Dates for which he owed were from 1970 to 1980. He never paid a cent, then or ever. Shortly after the divorce my father moved to florida Where he lived out the rest of his life. In approx 1977 or '78 my mother contacted the authorities in Florida and tried too collect on the back child support but came up empty. She recieved some letter back from either him or his attorney saying he was unemployed and unable too pay. My deceased fathers estate is not small, it will easily cover the complete cost of the back child support. Financially and Moraly we all feel this bill should be paid. Any advise or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
