Connecticut celebrity caught up in child support battle

Connecticut celebrities can find themselves in situations that leave their personal lives open to the public. One such athlete, Miguel Cabrera, is in the midst of a now very public child custody battle with a woman in another state. She claims he is not paying enough in child support. He contests, saying the florist is trying to get more money from him for personal use under the guise of child support payments.

A baseball hall-of-famer and highly paid player has found himself in a very public child support battle. The mother of his two children says that Miguel Cabrera is not currently paying enough child support and is requesting more than $100,000 a month. The 35-year-old mother would like for her two kids to receive the same standard of living as the three children of Cabrera's and his wife of 15 years.

The 34-year-old baseball player has requested paternity tests and claims that the woman is using child support as a way to extort him. He is currently paying over $6,000 per month, but the woman states the payments have decreased significantly after he helped her to purchase a large and expensive home. There is also some concern about the woman being able to keep private some things that both sides' attorneys have requested.

Whether a celebrity or just your average Connecticut resident, going through a break up with a significant other can lift the veil of privacy. Child custody and child support obligations can become public knowledge, and the reasons behind the split and any dirty laundry can be aired. Sometimes the case is not as clear as suggested, and the experience of an experienced family law attorney may be necessary.
