Allen Iverson accused of failing to make child support payments

Sometimes, child support disputes arise regarding an alleged failure to make required child support payments. Recently, such a dispute has arisen involving former NBA star Allen Iverson and his ex-wife. The former couple's divorce was finalized in February.

The former couple has five children. In January, a child support arrangement was established in which Iverson was to make monthly child support payments of $8,000 to his ex-wife.

A child support dispute has now arisen regarding these payments. Iverson's ex-wife alleges that Iverson has failed to make any of these required monthly payments. She claims that, in total, Iverson is $40,000 behind on child support. Iverson's ex-wife reportedly has made a suggestion to a court that Iverson should be thrown in jail in connection to his alleged failure to pay child support.

According to the TMZ article which reported this story, this week, a hearing is to be held regarding the child support allegations that have been leveled against Iverson by his ex-wife. One wonders what will ultimately happen in this child support dispute.

As this matter illustrates, child support disputes sometimes arise between parents and such disputes sometimes come before a court. Child support disputes can have many complicated aspects. What ultimately happens in such cases can have significant impacts on the individuals involved.

Thus, if a person is involved in a child support dispute, he or she may wish to consider consulting with an experienced family law attorney. A family law attorney can help an individual navigate the many complex and impactful issues than can arise in connection to child support disputes.
