Florida rapper responds to support lawsuit

Rick Ross, a Miami-based rapper who was sued for additional support from his son's mother, filed papers on Dec. 18, responding to the original suit. The woman had asked for an increase in monthly child support from $2,800 to $20,000, in a suit filed earlier in 2015.

According to the documents, Ross claims that the woman had prevented him from developing and maintaining a relationship with his 10-year-old son, prohibiting the child from visiting his father, and using other actions to alienate the child from him. Additionally, Ross claims that the woman had made various false claims against him in further attempts to get more money from him, including a rumor that he had bought a mansion for $6 million in Georgia. Furthermore, the court documents filed by Ross also state that the woman had failed to seek employment in order to help support the child.

The documents filed in court asked for a dismissal of the woman's suit for increased child support, as well as for the legal fees incurred due to the suit. Ross's concern is that the woman was using frivolous claims to harass him, and therefore her suit was baseless.

There are various criteria courts use to determine the amount of child support awarded. They might include the income and assets of both the custodial and non-custodial parent as well as the financial needs of the child. Always, the best interests of the child are at the center of any negotiations related to the child. The parents might design a fair support agreement to be approved by the court, or might have to go to court and have the court establish the support amount. In either case, a parent might benefit from the guidance a family law attorney might provide.
