Jesse Williams ordered to pay more than $50,000 in child support
California fans of the popular TV show "Grey's Anatomy" are familiar with one of the show's stars, Jesse Williams. Although he has captured the hearts of fans in this state and throughout the nation, Williams has been going through a rough child support and custody battle with his former wife. Some empathizing parents across the nation say Williams is definitely getting the short end of the stick.
Williams currently shells out more than $100,000 per month, with $50,629 in child support and the rest as a spousal support payment. Williams reportedly earns an income of more than half a million dollars per month. His ex has made some concerning allegations against him. For one thing, she says when they were married Williams never made getting the kids to school on time a priority.
The mother of Williams' two children, ages 3 and 4, also says his promiscuous lifestyle is not conducive to a healthy atmosphere for her little ones. She sought sole legal custody of the kids in 2017. Williams also filed court documents in which he states that the children's mother has intentionally tried to keep him from his kids.
The court seems to believe that Williams' parenting style is just fine as shown in its ruling for shared physical custody. There may be California parents who can relate to Williams' child support and custody problems. In all such situations, the court has the final voice in decisions. Parents are wise to seek experienced legal representation before heading to court, especially when contention exists between sides.
