Ludacris challenges increased child support request

Entertainer Ludacris has made the news recently because of a drawn-out legal conflict in Georgia with the biological mother of his daughter. The rapper claims that the child was conceived during a break with his long-term girlfriend, and the couple remains together in spite of the legal problems Ludacris is facing with the mother of his child. While the artist insists he is willing to pay child support to take care of his daughter, his legal team claims that the biological mother's request far exceeds what he can afford.

Georgia state law will determine whether the actor and rapper has to pay more than $1,754 per month for child support payments. The artist has had a successful year, and Forbes' Magazine reports that he is among the wealthiest performers in the hip hop industry. Ludacris' legal team claims that his monthly net income for 2013 only comes out to $25,842, a figure that is drawing some controversy since the artist drew in $12 million from hip hop sales that same year.

While reports of Ludacris' earnings are currently a subject of considerable debate, the artist's legal team has argued that the biological mother does not require the significant amount of support she has requested. No figures about her request have been released. The legal battle is likely to hinge on Ludacris' final income as assessed by the Georgia state court. Ludacris' legal team is likely to bring up the entertainer's generous contributions to charity to help in the aftermath of the typhoon in the Philippines

The rich and famous are not the only ones who need legal advice during custody battles. An attorney could help a couple resolve their custody disputes through negotiations and mediation.
