Family Law: Britney Spears to pay more child support

Celebrity divorces are often very different than the divorces of the rest of the population: assets are often much larger, and the public lifestyle causes special circumstances. The basic terms of their divorces are, however, the same terms that must be settled by all navigating the family law process. One of the most important terms that must be agreed upon, whether the couple is in California or Connecticut, is child support. Britney Spears and ex-husband, Kevin Federline, have just reached a settlement that will modify the terms of their child support agreement.

Spears and Federline were married for almost three years before divorcing in 2007. They had two children together. The couple reached a child support agreement at the time of their divorce, but recently Federline has sought a modification, asking for more money.

Federline has cited a decrease in his income since the original agreement as a reason for the request for more child support. Although the exact terms of the new agreement are confidential, it has been reported that Federline feels that it would take triple the $20,000 per month that he has been receiving since the divorce to meet the needs of the children while they are in his care. He has reportedly claimed that he only earns about $3,000 per month in income while his ex-wife earns over $34 million each year.

Celebrities aren't the only ones who have reason to re-negotiate their child support agreement. Many Connecticut couples experiencing changes in employment or other life circumstances may need to make some modifications to their existing terms. These modifications can be sought by either the payer or the payee. Enlisting the assistance of a family law attorney can help the individual navigate the legal process and be more successful in his or her appeal for a change.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
