Woman seeks permanent child support from NBA star

A Pennsylvania custodial parent knows how important it is to receive the necessary support for his or her children. In some cases, those child support payments can mean the child will get a nourishing meal every day, and in others, they can determine whether or not the child can participate in after-school activities or summer camp. The one-time mistress of NBA player Amar'e Stoudemire is seeking several things, including permanent child support for her daughter.

Although Stoudemire has been with his wife for 15 years and the two have four children together, the mother of a young girl claims he is the father of the child. He has stated the possibility exists and has been making payments of over $4,000 each month in temporary support. According to the child's mother, Quynn Lovett, Stoudemire does not have a relationship with the child and has not paid any of the $11,000 charged to her during the months of pregnancy and at the time of childbirth.

Stoudemire says he has not only paid Lovett's legal fees totaling $22,000 but has given her additional amounts of money in the past 10 months. Stoudemire has made over $160 million during the span of his 14-year professional career. The list of Lovett's requests include official recognition that Stoudemire is the child's father, permanent increased child support and established full custody.

Non-custodial parents have the responsibility to help raise the children they have brought into the world. Even when the parents are no longer together, children benefit greatly from financial support as well as from a consistent, yet flexible visitation schedule. Any parent having complications on either side of the child support fence will want to speak to an attorney familiar with the Pennsylvania family court laws.
