More child support requested from Jose Reyes

18825743_S.jpgIllinois baseball fans might have heard that Mets player Jose Reyes is in a dispute about child support with a woman with whom he had an affair. The two have a 7-year-old daughter together.

Reyes currently pays $11,500 monthly in child support from his salary of $22 million per year. The woman asked for the amount to be quadrupled. Her attorney said that her only income came from a rental property Reyes had bought for her. According to some sources, Reyes had been paying her more in child support, but in 2015, after his wife learned of the affair, the amount went down.

Reyes did not appear at an April 4 hearing. The woman requested a gag order, but the judge only agreed to block court documents from being distributed. Her attorney alleged that Reyes did not have contact with the child and had even tried to deny her existence at a press conference. A final decision from the judge is still forthcoming.

Parents are obligated to provide financial support for their child, but a judge may take a number of factors into account. Among these are income and the other expenses paid for by the parent, such as health care. People who can no longer pay the child support amount they were assigned may want to apply for a child support modification. For example, they might have lost their job and be struggling with a lower income. If the parent who pays child support has a significant increase in income, the custodial parent may want to get the child support amount increased.
