Singer Natalie Maines’ husband requesting child support

On Behalf of | Feb 4, 2019 | Child Support

Many people believe that being wealthy would make them immune from problems, but of course, that is not the case. Rich and famous people are just as susceptible to misfortune as anyone else. When wealthy people divorce, they can have a difficult a time in determining the provisions of child care. The recent divorce case of singer Natalie Maines, who is from Texas, illustrates this exact idea. She and her husband are attempting to work out the details of their divorce, which will possibly include child support.

Maines and her husband, actor Adrian Pasdar, had been married for seventeen years when she filed for divorce back in 2017. They had two sons together, and Pasdar claims that he put his career on hold to take care of them due to Maines’ career. She is part of the country band The Dixie Chicks. Pasdar is best known for his parts on television series such as “Heroes” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Though the two signed a prenuptial agreement, Pasdar is disputing it. He says that Maines paid for the majority of their joint expenses while they were married, including child care. He also claims that he has gone into debt in an attempt to care for the boys since he and Maines have separated. He has asked her for over $16 thousand a month in child support. He’s also seeking spousal support and payment of his legal fees.

It is very possible that Natalie Maines will pay some form of support once her divorce is finalized. Most parents here in Texas and elsewhere want to ensure their children are well taken care of, and that often means paying child support to the other parent. Those who have questions about child support agreements may benefit from consulting an attorney with experience in this field of the law. A knowledgeable legal professional can advise a parent of all of his or her legal rights and options.
