I hope someone here can help point me in the right direction with this question. I've searched, but can not find anything!
My sister's youngest daughter is currently receiving a Social Security Death Benefit due to the death of her father.
The father of her other children is seeking Child Support for her teenaged daughter that has lived with him for 6 years.
Can the death benefit her youngest daughter be considered as income when calculating the child support for the other child? I would think that this money is for the care and support of the child who lost her father. The checks and benefits are in her name...
Can anyone help?
