If you are executor of an estate in New Jersey and intend to make a distribution to the beneficiaries, there’s one important step you need to take first. NJ law requires an executor/administrator to initiate a child support enforcement order for any beneficiary receiving in excess of $2,000 prior to the distribution. The executor is personally liable for making a distribution without initiating the order, as the Child Support Judgment is a lien against the net proceeds of any inheritance in NJ.
The search must be conducted by a private judgment search company that will verify results. Urbach & Avraham’s estate administration services include the performance of Child Support Searches. If you would like assistance with your Child Support Search, call us at 732-777-1158 or email Pamela at email@example.com
