What happens if arrears are owed and parent aggressively pursues it? Can they get the person put in contempt and thrown in jail even many years after child becomes adult if no payments are made? My ex owes me 20,000 and the child is 20. I did not really pursue in the past few years and not even sure of status of case- person is in Delaware.I got irregular payments for many years.
Also if parent who owes support was to die- would the estate be expected to settle the debt like if you went in front of a probate judge or something?
