I do not intend to be stereotypical or to pass judgment in writing this blog post, but why on earth is there a strong correlation between professional athletes and outstanding child support debt? This is a common trend in many cases that I have come across in Los Angeles County and Orange County, respectively. An Orange County child support attorney can assist in any child support matter you may have.
Indeed, New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie has seven children from six different women spanning five States. The New York Jets picked up cornerback Antonio Cromartie from the San Diego Chargers for a third-round draft pick earlier this month and apparently gave him $500,000 of the $1.7 million he’s due to make this season straightaway.
According to the New York Post, Cromartie kept himself out of a San Diego courtroom by taking between $25,000 and $50,000 of that and sending it to one of the six mothers of his seven children. He apparently hadn’t been paying off his child support in a timely manner and the huge bundle of cash the Jets fronted him let him get back to where he needed to be.
I previously blogged about the consequences of failing to pay child support, including the possibility of jail time. If you are not in compliance with an existing child support order, you may want to comply forthwith. Otherwise, you have an uphill battle for your refusal to pay. Consult an Orange County child support attorney for more information.
