Magic Arenas served court papers during game

Quote:
Orlando guard Gilbert Arenas(notes) was served with child support and custody papers as he left the court during halftime of the Magic's game against Miami.

A process server stopped Arenas as he walked off the court during Thursday night's loss to the Heat. The court documents, obtained by The Associated Press, were a California petition filed by Laura Mendoza Govan. She identified herself as his ex-girlfriend in the documents.

The petition seeks custody and child support for three children that Govan says Arenas fathered and has since "financially cut off." She is also seeking support for another unborn child as well monthly support for the other children.

In the petition, she is seeking US$109,000 in monthly support payments from Arenas and $1.3 million annually.

Govan could not be reached for comment.

A hearing in the case has been set for March 8 in Los Angeles. Orlando plays at Sacramento on March 9. Arenas and the Magic played at Washington on Friday night.

The guard was unavailable for comment, but his lawyer, Lisa Fishberg of Washington-based Schertler & Onorato, said in a written statement that, "This is a private matter involving young children. It is inappropriate for Ms. Govan and her attorneys to attempt to turn it into a public spectacle."

He'll file a consumer proposal, if not Chapter 12, after 5-6 years of his retirement.

spousal and child support payments are not about what you need to take care of kids. it's about what the parent is able to provide and what the child has a right to as his/her dependant. additionally, it's about the standard of living that the child's mother has a right to, depending on the nature of her and the father's relationship. it is most definitely not about what the mother 'needs' to raise the children.

While I agree this is how it is, this isn't how it should work.

Child Support for situations like this should be something around 5k/month PLUS 250k/year into an account that the child can access when they're 18.

No, the mother doesn't have a right to a new standard of living because she was a cheap one night stand.
Simply put, bitch is in it for the money.
The kids likely wont see much of it at all.

well, that's why i said 'depending on the nature of their relationship'.

that said, how do you have 3 (and a 4th on the way) kids with someone after a 'cheap one night stand'?

and, given the length of their relationship and the clear intent to be the parents of at least a few kids, arenas has a legal (and i would argue moral) responsibility to take care of them and provide support for them. and the law indicates (quite rightly) that it is not the basic minimum that someone owes, but rather a payment in line with their income, with the expectations that the child is a part of that extended family relationship, and with the standard of living that comes with that family.

i have no idea what your knowledge of family law is, but your point about 5k per month, etc, is not in line with any legal system in the developed world. there might just be a few good reasons for that.

Maybe Arenas got what he wanted (the pussy) and now she'll get what she wants (the money). Seems like a fair exchange to me. If you don't want to pay child support proportional to your income, don't fuck the "bitch". Pretty simple.
