Florida fans of Britney Spears might have heard that she has been involved in a child support dispute with her ex-husband Kevin Federline. She has now been ordered to pay Federline $100,000 in child support. They have two sons who are 11 and 12 years old.
The original child support agreement was that Spears would pay Federline $20,000 per month. However, this agreement was made at a time when Spears was earning less and Federline was earning more. According to court documents, Spears is worth over $56.5 million while Federline says he only makes about $3,000 per month. Federline also says that since the boys are older, they are more expensive. Federline's attorney says he should get $60,000 per month from Spears. Federline has four other children, two daughters with his wife and a daughter and son from a previous relationship.
The two originally tried to work out a child support agreement, but they were unsuccessful. In May, Federline filed in court for the increase. The two have also been ordered to each pay a dispute resolution company $10,000. One source says the conflict started when Spears offered to take the children more often.
A Venice, Florida child support attorney may be able to help a person during a dispute over child support whether it happens while the divorce is in progress or later. A person might want to modify a child support agreement if there is a significant change in income. For example, a parent who pays child support might lose a job and be unable to pay the amount agreed upon. Parents who are in this situation may not want to delay in seeking a modification since if it is approved, it is generally not retroactive.
