Some people may think that child support ends with death. “Well, when I die, at least, I will not have to pay child support any longer.” Not so fast, the family of Scottie Pippen is still getting child support bills for him even thought he has been dead for 10 years. The story was reported in the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
The family attempted to clarify this matter many times over. Unfortunately, some child support office is chasing down a dead man when efforts could be made to better pursue living child support obligors in the State of Florida.
Child support is court ordered pursuant to a hearing or agreement of the parties. Typically, when the child graduates high school, marries, emancipates, or otherwise becomes self sufficient. The Court order of child support must be reviewed to determine the duration of the child support obligation in Florida.
