Would Marc Anthony Be Required To Pay More Child Support in Texas?

As reported by the Huffington Post, Marc Anthony’s ex-wife, Dayanara Torres, is taking him back to Court and requesting that a Judge order him to pay more child support for their two children. Dayanara is requesting Marc Anthony’s child support obligation be increased from $13,000 per month to $112,000 per month. She is citing his child support arrangement with his ex-wife Jennifer Lopez as one of the reasons why his monthly child support should be increased.

If Dayanara and Marc lived in Texas, Dayanara would be entitled to a modification of child support two ways:

There has been a material and substantial change in circumstances since the last court order regarding child support.

At least three years have passed since the last court order regarding child support.
Dayanara could cite a number of things to meet the burden of a “material and substantial change of circumstances.” At the time of Dayanara and Marc Anthony’s divorce in 2004, the singer claimed he was having “money troubles.” Fast forward nine years, Marc Anthony allegedly earns $1.25 million a month. If Dayanara can prove that Marc Anthony is making more money now than when the couple divorced, she will have met the burden of a “material and substantial change of circumstances” and his child support would be modified according to his new level of income.

In Texas if three years have passed since the last court order regarding child support, Dayanara would be entitled to an automatic review of Marc Anthony’s child support obligation. Because three years have passed since the last court order regarding child support, Dayanara would not be required to meet the burden of a “material and substantial change of circumstances.”

Dayanara should get a job and stop using the extremely generous child support for herself. No kid needs $6,500 a month and her request is even more absurd considering that Marc Anthony has provided more than the required child support. What a gold-digger!
