Court May Order Recipient of Support to Maintain Life Insurance

On Behalf of | Sep 16, 2014 | Divorce & Family

In Zaleski v. Zaleski, the wife was the recipient of support for the benefit of her and the children. The trial court ordered that the wife maintain life insurance to secure her obligations to cover the children’s expenses if she died while the children were still dependent upon the parents for support. While the Supreme Judicial Court remanded the decision back to the court as it found the amount of security to be excessive, the decision is important to note that even though a party is a recipient of child support, he or she may still be ordered to provide life insurance coverage for the benefit of the children in case he or she passes away.
