Most Washington parents currently facing legal problems regarding financial provision or care of their children do not have to worry about the personal details of their situations making national news headlines. However, private situations can be just as stressful as those that unfold before the public eye, such as an ongoing battle between professional basketball player Blake Griffin and his former girlfriend. She has filed a palimony lawsuit against Griffin and is requesting child support for their two children.
Griffin’s personal life has been talked about in the media on more than one occasion, especially since he reportedly struck up a romantic relationship with Kendall Jenner, a member of the famous Kardashian clan. In fact, Griffin’s former girlfriend mentions Jenner in her palimony lawsuit, saying Griffin brought shame to her family when he abandoned them then pursued a relationship with Jenner. The mother of two said she is requesting child support because Griffin continues to earn millions of dollars while her children’s basic needs remain unmet.
Griffin himself took steps to establish paternity and seek custody of his children some time ago. The children’s mother has petitioned the court for joint custody in addition to her child support requests. She recently told reporters that she has been relying on her brother for her own and her children’s financial support.
There may be single parents or divorced parents in Washington facing similar complicated child support situations. Emotions often run high on both sides of such issues. Parents who want to keep stress levels to a minimum and avoid temper-flared outbursts in court can ask experienced family law attorneys to act on their behalves.
