I Have Just Received A Back Child Support Check

I have just received a back child support check in my deceased wife's name for my step son who is now 19 from the state. she died 6 months ago and i was married to my wife for 10 years in which i supported our family. i was wondering legally if i am able to deposit this back owed child support check in an account we still have open jointly. i have supported this child since he was 4. these checks have come randomly over our married years and i feel someone is entitled to this money.

Thanks for your question. You should call your county child support office and ask if you legally can cash the check. You really should be aware of where the monies came from. Also you still have a bank account open with your wife's name?



Thanks
