Why is the court requiring me to carry life insurance in family law case?

Many Tampa family law attorneys request the court order the opposing party to carry life insurance in family law in excess of their child support obligation.  This is extremely frustrating for parties, who have significant animosity towards one another because they fear that the other party will use it on their new spouse or boyfriend.   This is only exacerbated when one of the parties is not enjoying the financial successes of the other party.

Ultimately, an experienced Tampa family law attorney will ensure the provisions of the Order concerning life insurance will be specifically paid into a spendthrift trust or some other alternative.  A spendthrift trust will limit payments out of the trust to the equivalent of the previously occurring child support payments.  This should serve to ease concerns about the mismanagement or wasting of the funds, if they were to pass away.  There are many methods to control and ease the concerns of the parties about the proper, frugal management of the life insurance proceeds.  Many folks are concerned when they are told they must carry life insurance in family law case.
