One of the central goals in most divorces is to make sure that both spouses and any involved children are prepared for whatever the future might hold. While many parents hope to remain alive for many years to see children lead successful lives, the death of a parent can occur suddenly and when families are not prepared a custodial parent can be left without adequate financial means to support a child. When a non-custodial parent who provides child support passes away, the skills of a knowledgeable child support lawyer in Birmingham, AL can prove invaluable.
Fortunately, there are several ways that a non-custodial parent can make sure that a child is provided for even after the parent’s death. In some cases, courts of law might even require one or several of these methods as a condition of divorce. Some of these methods include:
While the interests of any involved children in the estate of a deceased non-custodial parent often extend past a parent’s death, there are some particular circumstances when child support in the state of Alabama is discontinued. These situations include when the child reaches of the age of majority, becomes emancipated, adopted, or dies. When the death of a non-custodial parent who provides support occurs, there are still several situations in which any involved children have a continuing interest.
If you have experienced the death of a non-custodial parent who provides support, this event can often be emotionally difficult even without the complication of making sure that any involved children continue to receive adequate support.
