My son is involved in a suit for the wrongful death of his father. He was not currently employed at the time of his death, but stayed home with the kids and kept home. He was 22 and had aspirations of being a minister. Our son was ten months old and is now almost six years. He does not qualify for survivors benefits through social security because his father generally worked odd jobs, under the table.I do not meet with my lawyers until the day before the hearing and would like some idea now if possible. Any info would be great. I would like to know what a normal, fair amount is? Also, as the surviving parent and sole provider am I entitled to any financial assistance?To help explain, we lived together for two years, with our child, with intentions to marry. We have the settlement hearing coming up, which is why these questions came up. What is the average amount awarded?
