Baseball star Miguel Cabrera sued for child support

A Florida woman who says she had two children by baseball player Miguel Cabrera sued him for not providing sufficient child support. The woman says that although Cabrera has been married since 2002, she had children by him in 2013 and 2015. Cabrera and his wife have three children of their own.

Shared custody may be best for kids

Florida residents who are getting divorced may want to consider opting for shared custody of their children. As long as neither parent is abusive toward a child, both mom and dad should play an active role in their lives. Children of any age may benefit, but the advantages may be higher for younger children. As of 2017, data shows that mothers are awarded sole custody in 80 percent of the cases where custody is determined by the courts.

Child support and wage garnishment demographics

Some Florida workers may have their wages garnished for child support. According to a study published Sept. 27 by the ADP Research Institute, about 7 percent of workers have their paychecks garnished. More than two-thirds of people whose wages are garnished are men, and the most common reason for garnishment is unpaid child support. The study used anonymous data from 12 million workers to reach its conclusions.
