Britney Spears and former spouse disagree about child support

Pop music star Britney Spears is the mother of two sons. She is no longer married to their father. Their breakup was plastered all over news headlines in great detail, reportedly causing Spears to suffer a mental breakdown in 2007. California parents currently facing child support disputes may relate to what this former couple has gone through since then.  

When Spears fell apart emotionally and mentally, something she is certainly not the first parent to do when going through divorce, the court appointed her father as conservator, giving him authority to make financial decisions on her behalf. Spears has been paying $20,000 per month in child support for her sons. She also covers expenses related to things like tuition and travel.  

When her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, requested that Spears' monthly child support payments be doubled, her side of the camp was not agreeable. Some say the boys' dad only made the request because he knew Spears raked in more than $130 million while performing in Las Vegas last year. Federline says his children are getting older now and child-related expenses tend to increase as children grow.  

Spears' ex is the father of six, his two sons with her included. Spears says she wants to make sure the child support payments she sends are used for her own children's provisions and not to support Federline's other family members. As it stands, the issues between the former couple remain unresolved although each has requested the  tax return information from the other. California parents facing similar problems can reach out for legal support.
