child support arrears Bergen County Joseph Noto divorce lawyers

Who gets the child support arrears when the divorced mother dies? Joseph Noto, a Bergen County divorce lawyer, wants his viewers to know that the answer is: “Child support arrears due a divorcée at the time of her death belonged to her estate, not to her emancipated son, a New Jersey appeals court says. The child’s mother was the obligee and the debt transferred to her estate when she died, the Appellate Division held in Roder v. Roder on Dec. 31.”  Joseph Not says: This is nice to know isn’t it?
