Rapper Flo Rida sued for child support for the second time

Hip-hop fans in California likely know Tramar Lancel Dillard better by his stage name Flo Rida, and they may be aware that the 37-year-old rapper and songwriter became embroiled in a paternity and child custody dispute with a woman in September 2014. The woman sued Dillard claiming that he had made her pregnant and urged her to get an abortion, and a court-ordered paternity test subsequently proved him to be the father.

When a child custody order may be modified

When California parents first separate, the court may finalize a custody arrangement that benefits the child. Over time, however, the child custody arrangement may no longer work, especially if one parent wants to move or remarry. Although the court generally will not alter a child custody arrangement, there are very specific cases where a modification may be granted.

Child support payments after a child is emancipated

In most cases, a California noncustodial parent is required to pay child support until a child reaches the age of majority, which generally is 18. However, there are some situations where a child may decide to become emancipated, which means that they no longer require the support of their parents, and children may become emancipated as early as age 14 in some cases.

How child support is affected if a parent becomes disabled

If a California parent relies on child support to help pay for a child's shelter, education and medical costs, it can be a cause for concern if the noncustodial parent who is required to pay child support suddenly becomes disabled. However, parents should be aware that, generally, a disability should not prevent a parent from paying some, if not all, of the child support that they were court-ordered to pay.
