Rap star Kodak Black was recently ordered to pay a Florida woman $4,200 per month in child support for the son that they share. The order ends a lengthy battle over child support during which the woman claimed that Black was hiding a portion of his income.
Black and the woman have been embroiled in a child support battle over the 2-year-old boy. The woman alleged that Black was being dishonest about the amount of money that he made and asked the court to jail him for allegedly failing to disclose his financial information to her. The court named Black as the father of the baby in its order. He will be required to pay $4,200 until his son turns 18. In addition, the court ordered Black to pay for the boy's medical insurance as well as any dental and medical expenses that are not covered by insurance.
A child support attorney could help a parent obtain the necessary court orders to secure monthly payments. The lawyer may help the client to track down the noncustodial parent and uncover all of their sources of income. If a noncustodial parent is suspected of hiding income, the attorney might secure copies of the parent's bank records, pay stubs and tax returns.
A lawyer may also uncover evidence of any income that might be received from gig work by seeking and obtaining PayPal records. By conducting an in-depth investigation, the lawyer could help the client recover the child support that they need to raise their children.
