Estranged wife of Jesse Williams asks for more child support

The cost of childcare can be very expensive, more than many expect it to be. Massachusetts parents who are having difficulty providing for their children or who believe that their ex-spouses are able to contribute more may be able to get an increase in child support. Even celebrity parents find themselves in situations where they feel as though an increase in support payments is necessary. 

Aryn Drake-Lee, the estranged wife of Jesse Williams, has recently asked for another increase in child support payments to help cover the cost of childcare. The pair previously agreed that Williams would pay more than $50,000 in spousal support per month, but Drake-Lee claims that her and their children's monthly expenses were substantially more than that amount. She claims that their expenses are more than $70,000 per month, and she has asked for a nearly $27,000 increase in support payments to cover the additional costs. 

In her plea for a support increase, Drake-Lee has stated that she has been covering a number of costs out of her own pocket. These costs include tuition and class fees, housing costs, such as mortgage and property taxes, as well as the salary for the estranged couple's joint nanny. She stated that this increase in support would go towards ensuring that the children are able to live comfortably in both homes and that they are able to continue participating in activities to which they have become accustomed. 

A major concern for many parents, despite whether or not they are together, is that their children are properly provided for. Single parents in Massachusetts who are having difficulty providing financially for their children could benefit from speaking with an attorney. It may be possible in some cases for those families to receive an increase in child support payments.
