Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about this.
Yes, your daughter should get part of the settlement. You should not even have to ask. The family and the Attorney representing the father should have made provision for the minor child. You should ask whoever is in charge of the settlement funds for your daughter's share. If your request is ignored, then you need to file lawsuit against that individual for your daughter's share of the settlement.
Goodluck with your case,
If your daughter is a minor, she is entitled to support from her father. Since her father is no longer able to provide the support because of the accident, part of the settlement funds from the accident must be set aside for the support of the minor child. Otherwise, you have to sue whoever is acting on behalf of the father for child support.
