NY a child's rights before creditors take what they are owed
(Watertown, NY, USA)
If an estate is in the 10's of thousands of dollars and workers comp. is owed by the deceased can the minor child claim some of the assets before the creditors take there share? My daughter is 6 years old. Her dad dies a year ago. His sister has their mothers estate in her hands. My daughters father owed 50 thousand to workers comp and some other bills. Can my daughter lay claim to some of the money before the creditors take it? And if he had trucks, car, boat and 4 wheelers can my daughter have any of that before they take it?
