Jets' cornerback pays child support for 8 children

When you have a child with someone you don't live with or aren't married to, the likelihood is that you're going to be paying child support. Child support is necessary to support young children without the presence of a second adult income in the home. It isn't a replacement for seeing your child or raising him or her; instead, this money is used to help the primary caretaker support the young child's needs.

A member of the Jets, Antonio Cromartie, pays a high amount of child support, showing how your income can affect how much you have to pay to your children and ex for your children's care. The man in question has 12 children, according to a news report, which includes two twins his wife is expecting currently. The 31-year-old man has eight children with seven women other than his wife; he and his wife have two already who he doesn't have to pay support for.

To each of the children he fathered, he pays around $3,500 each month in child support for his or her care. It's estimated that he pays $336,000 each year. He's guaranteed a $7 million salary in 2015, but he has a four-year contract for $32 million. Besides this initial $7 million, the remaining money is not guaranteed.

Antonio Cromartie plays as a Jets' cornerback, and it's been suggested that to keep up his payments, he'll have to keep playing. Several of the women that he impregnated took him to court, while one has requested higher monthly payments. Several have complained he doesn't spend enough time with his children, only sending child support when necessary.

If you are owed child support but are not receiving it, an attorney can provide information on collection processes, such as wage garnishment.
