The Moneyologist: This deadbeat dad’s debt goes back to 1956 — his son says it’s payback time

Terrence Horan/MarketWatch

Dear Moneyologist,

I’m curious as to my own options with my father’s estate. My mother had the local District Attorney’s office go after my father (living in another state) for unpaid child support, after years of trying to get him to honor the divorce decree from 1956. I have all the documentation. She managed to wrest a few hundred dollars this way, but there were many previous years that went unrecovered.
