Texas woman seeks child support raise from NFL player

A Texas family law court will need to decide whether a Houston woman should receive an increase in child support from a professional football player who fathered her two children. This case might prove more complex than many support cases, however. The player with whom she is linked has 10 children with eight different women, plus two more on the way.

The woman's lawyer is asking for an increase in support for the two children, ages 4 and 3. The woman works for the state and also attends college. While she has enough money to survive, her attorney said extra money would help her to better provide for the children. The attorney said that even if the man gave an increase to all of his children, he would still live well with his $32 million contract.

It has been reported that he pays each mother approximately $3,500 per child each month, but the attorney of the Houston woman said she receives less than that. Raising children while going to school can be expensive, and the woman is within her rights to ask a court to modify a support order.

The Houston woman attempted to serve the man, 28, with the legal papers at his New Jersey address, which was the only address she had for him. When the attempt was made, she learned he had moved without sharing his new address with her.

The football player currently lives with his wife and their two children and a 7-year-old son from a prior relationship. The mother of that child said she does not know where her son is since his father and stepmother relocated. Recently, the football player announced that he and his current wife are expecting twins.

The other seven children live with their mothers across the U.S.
