Am I Able to Obtain Life Insurance for my Child’s Biological Father If we were Never Married?

“From a legal standpoint, would I be able to obtain a life insurance policy on my child’s biological father? I was never married to the child’s father and the child does not carry his last name. However, paternity has been proven and we have received legal child support for several years.”

You may be able to obtain a Court order for biological father to maintain a policy of life insurance for the benefit of your child, or to provide some other security. Absent a court order, or some other insurable interest, you will need his consent to maintain a policy on his life.
