Call the Attorney Generals office in your state and ask. I doubt you can get back child support but they should be able to tell you. Or, ask the question in your search engine but be sure to include what state you need info for.
Do not give him the needed death certificate. Contact Legal Aid services in your community to get good advice. It's usually free. The deadbeat may be able to get the death certificate without getting it from you so beat him to the punch and file for the money that is due you first.
First of all if your obviously deadbeat dad wants her death certificate tell him to go to the court clerk and pay for one himself if he wants to get his license back because that is not your responsibility! What a downright low life creep he is to even be asking you!
Secondly, I doubt you can collect the money he owed your mom but just in case you can recoup any of it go talk to the local court clerk where the child support decree is/was enforced and see if there is a remedy. If it is possible perhaps they will instruct you to go through the probate court?
