Pop culture buffs in Illinois might have already heard that Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian ended their relationship after their daughter was born in late 2016. The two never married although they were engaged until they called off the relationship. They still chose to make custody arrangements for their infant daughter and they were reported to still be in the process of creating a custody agreement.
There are many possible outcomes of the custody agreement for the former couple. The agreement may or may not include child support once it has been finalized. If it did include child support, two important facts must be taken into consideration. First, it was reported that Kardashian is the child’s primary caregiver. Second, Blac Chyna has a higher income than Kardashian. These two factors could influence a judge’s decision to grant child support to Kardashian if he chose to request it.
Although the former couple was earning an income together on their reality show “Rob & Chyna”, once their relationship ended so did the show. For Kardashian, that left only the income from his appearances on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, which were few and far between. Blac Chyna, on the other hand, is earning substantial income from television and hosting appearances. This high income would put her in the position to provide child support for their daughter if it were requested.
In a divorce or separation involving parents of minor children, child support agreements are undeniably important. It is necessary for the parent who is the primary caregiver to have enough funds to properly care for the children. This can in many cases be resolved through negotiations between the parents with the help of their respective lawyers.
