Child Support - Life Insurance in Florida

A court cannot order a party to maintain life insurance without a request from one of the parties. "It is true that section 61.13(1)(c),Florida Statutes (2010), provides that the court may order a party to maintain life insurance to protect an award of child support. But this court has held that a trial court does not have the authority to require a party to obtain life insurance in order to secure child support payments where such relief was not sought or litigated. See Williamitis v. Williamitis, 741 So. 2d 1176, 1177 (Fla. 2d DCA1999); cf. Broome v. Broome, 821So.2d406, 408 (Fla. 2d DCA 2002) (reversing requirement that Former Husband obtain life insurance to secure alimony because Former Wife did not request such relief)." Eisele v. Eisele
