Musician's lavish lifestyle becomes a matter of family law

Georgia residents may be among the millions of Americans that have a legal issue within their own family. Issues like divorce, adoption and child support are some of the many situations that make their way to family law court. Child support can seem like a tricky issue, because even when an order has been put in place by a court, a change in either parent's income can bring about a need for a review. 

Recently, popular Georgia musician Gucci Mane found himself in exactly this situation. The court had previously ordered him to pay the mother of his son about $2,000 per month toward the care of his young son, with whom he has visitation rights. At the time the order was put into place, the amount was calculated based on the current income of both parents. By all reports, the payments were made on time. 

The child's mother states that the boy has special needs that require him to have round the clock care, and since she cannot afford a caregiver, she cannot work outside the home. She became angry when she saw the musician's lavish million dollar wedding on television. She feels that if his financial circumstances have improved to such a drastic degree, he should be able to afford to pay much more to care for his special needs child. 

Family law can be stressful for parents who only want the best for their children. Many parents chose to align themselves with an experienced attorney when dealing with these important issues. An attorney may be able to assist a parent in dealing with matters of family law in court in a manner that protects the parent's interests and upholds the best interests of any children involved.
