Allowance for support

The allowance for support or family allowance is $40,000.  It is paid to the surviving spouse if there are no minor children or all of the minor children are children of the spouse.  If however, there are minor children not belonging to the surviving spouse (step children) the family allowance is equitably divided among the surviving spouse and the minor step children.
