Texas banking multimillionaire seeks child support repayment

For someone going through a divorce, unforeseen things sometimes happen. One banker who has been dealing with a divorce has found out about an abortion his ex-wife had after they split up. That was the beginning of an interesting journey for him.

The 59-year-old multimillionaire banker has recently asked a judge to let him stop paying her child support in the amount of $5,000 per month. This stems from the fact that he has had temporary custody of the children since April of 2013. In addition to stopping the child support order, he is asking the judge to make her repay the child support he has paid since the two children have been in his custody.

The 38-year-old woman, who gave up a career as a human resources executive when she married the banking mogul, says that his asking for this money is vindictive and cruel. It is said that if he wins this request, she won't be able to afford her Upper West Side apartment that she hopes to share with her children.

This couple married in 2006 and were divorced in October of 2011 amid confessions from the man that he was with prostitutes dozens of times during the marriage. It shows just how complex some divorces can become.

If you are facing a divorce that involves children, understanding your responsibilities and rights might help you to make sure that your interests remain protected throughout the proceedings. Seeking advice from an experienced Texas divorce attorney might help you to understand everything that is going on in your case.
