Miguel Cabrera sued for child support

Berks County baseball fans might be interested in learning that Miguel Cabrera, a slugger with the Detroit Lions, has been sued by a woman in Orlando for allegedly failing to pay her enough child support for two children who he fathered with her. Cabrera, who has been married to his wife since 2002, reportedly fathered the two children with the Florida woman in 2013 and 2015. He has three children with his wife as well.

According to court documents, the woman claims that Cabrera helped her to purchase a home with a mortgage of $924,744. After helping her to purchase the home, Cabrera reportedly reduced her child support payments to $6,400 per month. He has paid her child support since 2013.

The woman agrees that without Cabrera's help, she would not have been able to purchase her home. However, she is arguing that under Florida law, he should pay her 7.5 percent of his income, which would amount to $2,250,000 per year. His attorneys are arguing that the woman's financial affidavit only shows $6,400 per month in children's expenses and that the court should deviate from the child support guidelines. Cabrera has also asked for paternity testing to determine whether or not the children are his.

Child support is ordered in the best interest of the child rather than in the interest of either parent. The payments are meant to provide children in similar situations to what they would have enjoyed if their parents had stayed together. When a noncustodial parent has a sizable income, he or she may be ordered to pay thousands of dollars per month. Parents who are not receiving adequate support might want to get help from family law attorneys.
