Rap artist Kodak Black ordered to pay child support

Pennsylvanians who follow news from the world of rap music may know that Kodak Black has been embroiled in a lengthy child support battle with the mother of his 2-year-old son. Recently, a court issued its final orders in the case, and the hip hop star will pay $4,200 per month until his son reaches the age of majority.

News sources report that the child's mother, a Florida woman, argued that Black was being dishonest about the amount of income he earns. She once asked the court to hold him in contempt of court and send him to jail because she claimed that he had refused to turn over his financial records.

The case is now over and Black will pay child support each month until his son turns age 18. Black will also be responsible for covering his son's medical insurance as well as all uninsured dental and medical expenses. As a result of the case, Black was also officially named as the father of the boy.

Raising a child is expensive. That's why courts expect both parents to contribute to a child's upbringing. When a noncustodial parent fails to pay child support, the custodial parent may benefit by getting legal help. An attorney could help a client obtain financial documents from the noncustodial parent and uncover any hidden sources of income. After a child support order is in place, the parent who is ordered to pay must make the payments as ordered or risk being held in contempt of court. The potential sanctions for the nonpayment include jail time, wage garnishments, property liens and tax levies.
