Woman sues Flo Rida for back child support payments

On Behalf of | Apr 27, 2017 | Child Custody & Support

North Carolina music fans may be interested to learn that a woman is suing rapper Flo Rida for allegedly failing to pay child support for his infant son, according to multiple news reports. The woman lives in New York.

In court documents, the plaintiff claims that she dated Flo Rida between December 2015 and January 2016, during which time she became pregnant with the rapper’s child. She gave birth to a baby boy in September. Unfortunately, the 7-month-old has hydrocephalus, which is the abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid on the brain. Apparently, the plaintiff is having difficulty paying for his medical treatments, which prompted her to sue Flo Rida for back child support payments.

The plaintiff included a paternity test in her court filing. The test reportedly shows that there is a 99.99 percent chance that Flo Rida is the father of her child. The “Wild Ones” creator has not publicly commented on the case.

Parents who are having difficult collecting child support payments from a non-custodial parent may benefit by seeking the advice of an attorney. There are many federal and state enforcement procedures that could be used to collect arrears child support payments, including wage garnishment, property liens, suspension of professional licenses and driver’s licenses and even jail time. An attorney familiar with local child custody and support laws could asses a case and recommend the best method of collecting delinquent payments.
