Former NBA star Glen Rice faces child support issues

Many individuals are tasked with making support payments for their children. Whether these payments were ordered during a divorce or other legal proceedings, child support payments must be made as dictated. However, some individuals who are struggling financially may feel as if their payment obligations are too much. Luckily, there are options for support modifications that may be able to help.

California residents may be interested in such a situation surrounding former NBA player Glen Rice. Reports stated that Rice had been order to pay $1,500 each month in support of a child he fathered. However, Rice reportedly has been struggling financially due to being unable to find employment after his retirement from professional basketball. He has apparently been living off his earnings and odd jobs since retiring over a decade ago. 

As a result of his struggles, Rice reportedly filed a plea with the court system in hopes of lowering his support payments. His attempt at gaining modifications was successful, and he will reportedly now owe $600 each month in child support. It was noted, however, that he must first catch up on the $2,000 in back support that is owed. 

Facing financial struggles is an issue that could affect anyone. Individuals who have child support obligations may be particularly concerned with their circumstances as finding the means to make their payments may be difficult. However, as this case shows, California residents who are in such predicaments may be able to pursue child support modifications. Interested parties may wish to discuss this option with experienced attorneys who understand the process.
