Miguel Cabrera sued in child support case

9755724_S.jpgMissouri residents are likely aware of who Miguel Cabrera is for what he does on the baseball field. A woman has filed a lawsuit against him based on something he did in his personal life. According to a lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court in Florida, Cabrera reduced child support payments in 2017 for two children he supposedly fathered with her. He allegedly fathered the first child in 2013 and the second in 2015.

Cabrera had been making child support payments to the women since 2013. Under Florida law, he would be required to pay the mother 7.5 percent of his salary based on the facts that he has two children and makes more than $10,000 a year. This past year, he made $30 million playing for the Tigers. Therefore, he would owe $2.25 million to the mother of his children.

However, Cabrera has asked for paternity tests and claims that he is the victim of extortion. He also took a mortgage on a house for the woman, but she claims that it is too expensive to maintain. In addition to the two children he is alleged to have with the plaintiff, he also has three children with his wife who he been married to since 2002.

In many cases, state law determines how much support a child must receive from a noncustodial parent. However, it is also possible that an agreement created by the parents may also set parameters for how a child is supported. Any agreement that parents create to care for their children may need to be approved by a family court judge. This may help to ensure that it meets the child's best interests as well as reasonably conform to standards set by the state.
