Rapper Ludacris embroiled in child support case

Babies are born every single day in Massachusetts. Each baby is born into a different family situation. Some go home with two parents while others go home with a single parent. In the case of single parents, many times there are child support issues for the parents to sort out. For example, the rapper Ludacris has recently found himself embroiled in a child support case with the mother of his infant daughter.

The baby was born in early December. As a result, Ludacris, who is also known as Christopher Bridges, filed papers in court requesting that the amount of child support he be required to pay is capped at $1,700 a month. In response, the baby’s mother has also filed papers.

The woman alleges Bridges pays well more than double the amount he requested in lawn care and pet costs. She feels he should pay more for his daughter’s care. She has additionally requested that Bridges pay for her legal fees.

When a Massachusetts parent feels he or she is receiving an unfair amount of child support, or is required to pay an unfair amount in regards to their current circumstances, they have the option of making their argument in a family law court. In all cases, it is important to realize that the mother and father aren’t the only people affected by the outcome of such a case. Generally, the amount a parent is ordered to pay is reflective of their current financial situation; however, modifications can be requested based upon evidence of a substantial change in financial circumstances. The child’s best interests is typically paramount in resolving disagreements over the amount of support to be paid.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
