I am very sorry to hear this; under code 733.707, child support obligations are 6th in line in order of priority. Please see:
Basically the decedent's estate is liable for child support arrears. If probate is open, the obligee parent would submit a claim; if probate is not open (for example, property passes through a trust, or via the manner in which property is held) then the obligee parent would need to sue to collect from any assets that were revocable up until the time of decedent's death-so this would include revocable, but not irrevocable trusts.
The obligee would need to name the decedent's estate as the defendant, and so a heir in possession of relevant property would need to either defend the suit or pay out the claim.
