In California, there are frequently child support battles that are waged in the public with recognizable names making allegations and demands. Even when there is a child support agreement in place, changes are often sought to alter it. That could mean the side paying does not want to pay as much. By contrast, it could mean that the recipient wants more. While famous people find their legal issues regarding financial needs and expenses played out in public, this often happens to normal people with far less money at stake.
The signer Marc Anthony has found himself embroiled in a child support dispute with his ex-wife Dayanara Torres. Ms. Torres is a former Miss Universe and the mother of two of Mr. Anthony's children. She would like an increase of child support from its current amount of $13,000 per month to $112,000 per month.
