Fotis Dulos was broke when he died in January, yet now his elderly mother-in-law, Gloria Farber, is seeking child support as she has become the guardian of his and Jennifer Dulos’ five children, according to The New York Post.

Dulos, who once ran a successful home building company called the Fore Group and owned a large home, used all of his money to pay for legal fees and lawyers as he attempted to prove his innocence in regards to his estranged wife’s May, 2019, disappearance. He had two different bank accounts, both of which came to a total of $272 upon his death. In addition, the Fore Group’s balance is currently at zero and is in debt. In addition, Dulos still owed money for his Farmington mansion.

Even a safety deposit box Dulos owned was drained empty. He shared that box with one other person, whose identity has yet to be determined.

“It is anticipated that the estate may be insolvent,” said the administrator Christopher Hug.

One potential source of funds could come from Dulos’ will, if he had one, which Hug is working to determine.

Further details have also come to light in regards to how much child support Jennifer was asking for from Dulos prior to her disappearance. She wanted $4,400 a month to care for the children who lived with her in her home. In wake of Jennifer’s disappearance and Dulos’ arrest, Farber won guardianship of the five children.

Jennifer was last seen dropping her kids off at work. While Jennifer’s body has never been located, it is believed that she is dead. Law enforcement believes that Dulos was her killer, but before this could be proven, he took his own life. He was found sitting in a running vehicle in his enclosed garage. He died several days later of carbon monoxide poisoning, leaving a suicide note behind.

After his death, Jennifer’s loved ones released the following statement, as The Inquisitr previously reported.

“Five children have lost both parents in the span of eight months. Our main priorities are ensuring their well-being and protecting their privacy. Understandably, they wished to say goodbye to their father, which we arranged with the assistance of hospital personnel. Tragically, the children have not been — and may never be — able to say goodbye to their mother, Jennifer, who remains missing. This horrific reality continues, and we ask once again that the privacy of the families and loved ones be honored.”
