What Happens To Child Support And Alimony When A Parent Dies?

Child support and alimony payments do not necessarily stop after a noncustodial parent's death. The deceased parent's estate still has an obligation to the decedent's child and spouse. If you are your child's noncustodial parent or you pay alimony to your ex-spouse, we can help plan your estate to address these issues. If you receive child support or alimony payments, we can help you address these concerns in your estate plan as well.
