More than likely you can attach the inheritance when it is depositied in to a bank account.  You probably can not intercept it like a tax return.  Do you have a judgement for the arrears?  I would probably consider taking him back to court and obtaining one so that you have something to file against a bank account or if he passes, collect against his estate.  It all needs to be documented and recorded.  Good luck.
