Because of the mobility we have in this country, it is not unusual for parents to move to another state, taking their children with them. Many people who live in Sarasota have come from other places and the relocation has no effect on a parent’s rights relating to child support. Parents have a responsibility to provide financial support for their children to pay for everyday expenses and this is regardless of whether they are married to each other or not.
Apparently the laws regarding child support can also be applied to the estate of a parent when they die. A woman who moved to Florida to be closer to her mother, recently was awarded child custody support from the estate of her children’s father, who was murdered. It appears that the man provided for the woman and their children; the woman is on a limited income due to disability.
