Customer Question

My sister just died, May 24, 2015. She has a divorce decree ordering support and repayment of two loans and monthly spousal support. No children. He never paid. She was informed he returned to Portugal. We have found out he never left the U.S. can the estate go after him for these payments?

If the order does not specify anything to the contrary, the estate could seek any amounts owed from the ex.
