Judge grants Chris Brown joint custody of daughter

Singer Chris Brown and ex Nia Guzman will share custody of their 1-year-old daughter, according to a Houston judge’s recent ruling, Times Live reported on Monday, September 14.

Royalty’s mother had claimed before that her daughter may not be suited to Brown’s lifestyle and parenting methods. Brown, on the other hand, has persistently fought for the custody of his daughter and has said that he is a good father. The judge also dismissed the $15,000 in child support demanded by Guzman. However, she will continue to receive her monthly payment of $2,500 from Brown. Though an incident in July took place in Chris Brown’s home in Los Angeles, his legal counsels argued that Brown is not putting his daughter at risk.

Millions of dollars in child support go unpaid each year

Data from the North Carolina Health and Human Services showed that $280 million in child support, out of the total court-ordered amount of $815 million, went unpaid in 2014–revealing the difficult situation that many single parents face, WNCN reported on April 30.

A national statistical breakdown of custodial parents who were eligible for child support payments in 2013 include: 82% women; 79% are 30-years-old or over; 57% have just one eligible child; 29% have an income below the federal poverty level, among others. The percentages of those eligible for child support also vary vastly by ethnicity.

For the past five years North Carolina has collected only about 65% of child support payments owed.

Hedge fund billionaire’s ex wife demands monthly support of $1 million

Citadel Founder and CEO Ken Griffin’s divorcing wife is demanding a monthly child support payment of $1 million to maintain the living standards of their children in Illinois, a March 4 article by the New York Post said.

According to the billionaire’s estranged spouse Anne Dias Griffin, Ken is earning a monthly net income of $68.5 million, or $2.2 million every day. Though Ken, 46, blasted Anne’s demand, she argued in her documents that Ken should continue to support the kind of living he established for his family because their children never lived the life of typical families in America. Dias’ child support demand is only 2 percent of Ken’s income, despite the Illinois state guidelines for child support being 32% of the income.

Man named in 15 paternity cases already owes child support for 14 children

A Nebraska man could possibly have 29 children if he is proven to be the father in 15 pending paternity cases brought against him by nine different women. The Lincoln man, 49, is already father to 14 children.

It may be difficult for the man to financially support any additional children because he is already behind in child support payments by $80,000 for his current children. The man has been behind on his child support payments since 1984 and was recently arrested for his actions.

A judge in his case ordered him to begin paying off his child support debt, or he will face jail time. He was told he had to pay $500 a month in child support and $800 in back support starting December 1 in order to avoid spending time behind bars.

If you are not receiving the full amount of child support that you are owed, you need experienced representation on your side in order to secure that amount. Please contact the child support lawyers of Marshall & Taylor PLLC, by calling 919-833-1040 today.
