$58K child support being sought from NBA star Iguodala

Professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors Andre Iguodala is facing an increase in monthly child support payments if the mother of his daughter is successful. Reports have said the 31-year-old Warriors shooting guard is currently paying $18,000 each month, but his 6-year-old daughter’s mother, Clayanna Warthen, is seeking to raise that amount to $58,000.

According to reports, Warthen is demanding the increase in monthly payments in order to better accommodate the educational needs of their exceptionally intelligent child. In what many have seen as an attempt to attack Iguodala’s personal character, Warthen claims that he seldom spends time with his daughter. Allegations that Iguodala does not want his daughter to play basketball due to his fear that she will “turn into a lesbian” have also surfaced. The truth of these rumors remains unclear.

Making changes to your child support agreement

While your child support agreement may have been representative of your circumstances at the time of your divorce, these agreements often need to be modified over time. While there any number of legitimate reasons to modify a child support agreement, many people choose to modify their agreements to account for one or more of the following:

  • Changes in income level
  • New needs on part of the child or children
  • Either partner’s remarriage

By making a child support agreement more representational of both partners’ present circumstances, divorced parents can better maintain their own interests as they continue to provide their child with the best possible means.

Though this process often stands to benefit both partners, many people still choose to work with legal representation to help them arrive at a new agreement. With an experienced attorney at your side, you can rest assured that you will be aware of the best possible moves that you can make moving forward.

If you need to make alterations to your child support agreement so that it is more representative of your present circumstances, you should speak with one of the Colleyville child support attorneys at Alexander & Associates.

Billionaire’s ex asking $1M in monthly support

American hedge billionaire Ken Griffin’s estranged spouse Anne Dias Griffin is asking for a monthly child support payment of $1 million, an article by the New York Post stated on March 4.
