Was your friend's name on the house also? Did the husband have a will?

Your friend would automatically own the home and be responsible for any liens on it. If the husband was behind in child support payments, his estate will owe the past-due amount. Once his estate has been opened, his ex-wife, other adult custodian or even state child support enforcement agency may file a claim against his estate with the court for back child support. The executor may prevent the accrual of future child support payments by notifying the courts or state child support enforcement agency of the dad’s death. The estate will generally have to pay the child support obligation before assets are disbursed to you. Possibly, there could be a lien placed on the home for the back child support. I know this answer is not exactly what you wanted to hear. However, it is best to know what can happen. If you want to discuss more, just let me know.
