    No - UNLESS there is a judgment against him.

    Is there?

    First you as the child do not have any claim at all.

    Your mother would have a claim against the estate, and if the probate of the court honors the claim money or property from the estate would have to be used to cover the debt

    Depends on the State - in NY without a Judgment the Estate is not going to be forced to pay. The Probate Court in my area has taken the position that if the non-custodial parent didn't bother to pursue past-due support the Probate Court isn't going to either.

    And, no, in any situation I can't see the Court handing over land. Liquidate, perhaps - if the debt is somehow acknowledged.

    And FrChuck is right - the non-custodial parent has the claim, not the child.
