Cordell commented on the situation facing wealthy NFL cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who has fathered nine children in six states with eight different women. Cromartie has multiple child support orders that are based on his multi-million dollar salary.
But Cordell warns “child support should not be a windfall for the mother.”
His law firm Cordell & Cordell handled one case in which “a very successful lawyer had been ordered to pay approximately $30,000 a month in child support, based upon this theory that he earned a lot of money and the percentage should be applied no matter what his income,” said Cordell, founder of Cordell & Cordell and DadsDivorce.com.
The case went to the Court of Appeals, and the payment was lowered to $5,000 a month, he said.
