Yung Joc, Girlfriend Clarify Child Support Situation

Rapper Yung Joc came forward yesterday (August 18) to clarify recent allegations made by his seven-year-old son’s mother regarding late child support payments.

Speaking to Atlanta radio personality Ryan Cameron, Joc explained the existing arrangement between him and his son’s mother Fatimah Jester, just three days after she appeared on a local television news broadcast, Yung Joc was behind on child support payments.

“When I got on, I was only ordered to pay $114 a month because the courts couldn’t determine how much money I was gonna make,” Yung Joc explained during a live interview on V-103’s Ryan Cameron Show. “I was like, ‘What the hell is that? Who can survive on that?’ As far as it looked to them, I didn’t have a job. But I was paying more [than what was ordered]. And something came up one day, and she came to me and said, ‘I think we need to sit down and talk, because I need more money.

“My attorney got with her attorney, I think we did it in a cool fashion,” Joc continued. “We came up with an agreement: I was paying $2000 a month, I would take care of all his medical issues, expenses, extracurricular activities, anything to do with my son. And that was the agreement, and I never missed a payment.”

A few hours earlier, Jester contacted V-103 personality Porsche Foxx.

While she maintained that a discrepancy existed, she explained that Joc was not behind on child support payments, as had been reported on Friday (August 15).

The issue at hand, she said, was that the payments were not timely. Joc, born Jasiel Robinson, stated in his own defense that what his son’s mother is referring to as lateness is a matter of a couple of days, a delay that may simply be caused by how his child support payments are processed.

“I don’t pay it directly to her, I pay it through [the Georgia Department of Resources Office of Child Support Services],” said Joc. “My banker wires the funds to DHR, they wire the funds right to her account. However long that takes, she needs to discuss that with them, and not put me out there bad like that.”

While he says he is more hurt than angered by his former girlfriend’s actions, Joc did express anger at the media for exploiting the situation and jumping at the opportunity to paint him in a negative light.

In addition to reporting that he owed back child support, which Jester never claimed, the WSB-TV report pointed out only his previous encounters with the law.

“They brought up all the charges I been through,” Joc pointed out. “But they never brought up the fact that since I been on, I’ve contributed over half a million to charities and I do charitable work every week…you got cats out here who don’t even be with their kids. And it hurts even more because I am a black man…you born into this world as a black man, your back’s against the wall. So I’m trying to do everything I can to go against the odds that was against me when I’m born…and when you look up in the media at stuff like this depicting your character to be just what they stereotype you as, it hurts.”

Does child support change if another child is born?

If a person who pays child support has a baby with a new partner does the CS for the older child get reduced because the payer has to also support the new child even though new child lives in household with payer?
Unfortunately no, the child that is the last to be born is the one that really has the least of rights. It may not be fair but the Court always has the interest of the child who is getting the child support. There are many of children who currently suffer because a percentage of money is sent to another house hold. So the best interest of the child is bias.

'Wanted' posters help find parents

Every six months, a new set of faces that represent 10 parents "wanted for failure to pay child support" is plastered on posters displayed across Mississippi.

The Department of Human Services hasn't received much response from its latest poster. But DHS officials say the poster technique, used since the late 1990s, results in a minimum 60 percent success rate in locating the men and women.
Getting them to pay is a different matter. Some people don't have the money to support their children, said Walley Naylor, director of the Division of Child Support Enforcement.
"And some people will pay because they don't want their picture on that poster," he said. "It lets people know we're serious."
One thousand posters are scattered throughout the state at post offices, state buildings and child-support offices in each county. The poster also is on DHS's Web site.
To be pictured on the poster, parents must owe at least $10,000 and lack any information that would help locate them, such as a current address or employer.
"When these noncustodial parents don't support their children, taxpayers get the bill for their financial and medical support," the poster says. It names the parents and gives a toll-free number for DHS.
Nsombi Lambright, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union in Mississippi, said she's not sure if the poster violates privacy rights. The ACLU has protested statewide billboards that feature photographs of sex offenders.
"I'm sure resources can be used more effectively to help families and support the lives of children," Lambright said.
But Craig Robertson, a Ridgeland family law attorney who handles child-support cases, said he believes the posters serve as a deterrent.
"I think most fathers don't want to be considered a deadbeat dad," he said.
One woman is featured in the latest poster.
DHS announced last week that Mississippi received millions more in child-support payments over the last fiscal year because of more efficient collection methods.
Heavy caseloads prevent the state from collecting a lot more money.
DHS served 468,548 children during the fiscal year that ended June 30, and collected more than $264 million in child support. That's a $21.9 million increase over the previous fiscal year. About 65,000 families are getting some form of child support each month, up from 62,000 the year before.
About $800 million has gone uncollected during the last 20 years, Naylor said.
Mississippi uses a variety of methods to enforce child-support payments. Some of those include withholding income, intercepting taxes and unemployment benefits, denying passports and suspending driver's licenses.
"Most people pay, in my experience, without having to be repeatedly sued," said James Bell, a Jackson family law attorney who handles child-support cases. "There is a significant number who don't pay."
Sometimes parents leave the state or stop reporting income to avoid child-support payments, Naylor said.
Bell said sometimes parents can't afford to pay because they lost their job or business. And sometimes a rocky relationship with their ex plays a factor, he added.
"If you can get them to focus on the welfare of a child, most people say, 'I want to help my child, regardless of how I feel about my (ex),' " he said.

16-Yr.-Old To Pay Child Support

It's a situation fraught with so many twists and turns that if you saw it on a movie screen you might not believe it.
It began when a 19-year-old girl from the town of Lancaster, Ohio was accused of molesting a 15-year-old boy. Jane Crane was allowed to stay at the child's Columbus-area home when allegations surfaced that her stepfather was being abusive.
But something apparently clicked between the girl and the underage son of those providing her temporary refuge. She's since been charged with unlawful sexual conduct, after allegedly having physical relations at least twice with the underage boy.
So far, the story is somewhat sad, but not that unusual.
But here's where it takes an odd turn. The teen became pregnant as a result of the encounter and paternity tests prove the boy is the father of the little girl, who was born in late April.
Now a court has ordered the youngster to pay $50 a month child support, despite the fact the act that resulted in the child's birth was apparently illegal.
Crane, meanwhile, could face up to 18 months in jail if she's convicted, and that's now prompted the boy's family to try and gain custody of the newborn. The baby is currently living with Crane and her family not far away.
The parents of the now 16-year-old say that because of the allegations against the stepfather, they don't think their granddaughter is safe and they want to take her home with them. They're also outraged that a teenager said to be the victim of a crime has to pay child support.
The unidentified boy's parents claim their son is having nightmares and problems sleeping and that his life has been changed forever because of his naivete. His folks are hoping for a plea bargain to resolve the issue, even as the young mother awaits her own day in court this week.
So what is next a teacher molest a student 15 and she is 21; she gets pregnant and they expect the 15 year old to pay support, is that really right? I guess as a man he should have rapped it up?

Former basketball star Jason Caffey

A former NBA basketball star wants to back out of his own bankruptcy case, but lawyers for at least two of the seven mothers to whom he owes child support urge the judge to sell off his assets.

Faced with the threat of jail in two states, Jason Andre Caffey went to U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Mobile a year ago, seeking breathing room to renegotiate tens of thousands of dollars' worth of child support debts.

So what is sad is he was running around having babies all over the place and can not even pay for what children he has had. Although he could have got caught in the system where he has several courts that are not acknowledging what the other courts are implementing as orders. Creating mass confusion.

Yung Joc Sued Over Child Support

Atlanta rapper Yung Joc has reportedly been sued by the mother of his seven-year-old son over child support.
According to WSBTV, Fatimah Jester claims that Joc owes her $2,000 in court-ordered child support payments and has refused to stay in touch with her. She also claims the rapper's missed payments have made it difficult for her to pay bills.
“I never thought he would be putting me through some of the stuff I'm going through now,” Jester said. “I can't even get in contact with him for things for my's just hard”.“The type of money he makes, $2,000 is nothing,” she added. “[He] has all kinds of cars, Bentleys, Mercedes Benz, Ranger Rovers, two Range rovers”.
It does not matter if he has 10 Bentleys, the key is he has a child that he is not paying child support for. Regardless of the situation he has a responsibility to his child and if he does not value his child, then maybe he would value some time sitting in jail!

Man Ordered To Prison In Child Support Case

A Cushing man was given a five-year prison term Friday by a Payne County judge for failing to pay back child support, now totaling $31,773.
Eleven years ago, Vernon Scott Turner was ordered to pay $350 per month for the support of his three children, who were then ages 3, 4, and 9 and living in Creek County.
At the time that he was criminally charged two years ago, Turner owed $24,423 in back child support, court records show.
Six months ago, while he was in the Payne County Jail, Turner, 45, pleaded guilty to failure to pay child support and was released on a personal recognizance bond.
When Turner failed to appear in court for his sentencing in March, a bench warrant was issued for the arrest of Turner, who has been in custody since Aug. 1.
In court Friday after prosecutor Kathy Thomas recommended a five-year prison term for Turner, defense attorney Todd Higgins attempted to withdraw Turner's guilty plea -- which was denied by Payne County District Judge Donald Worthington.
When the judge asked Turner why he hadn't complied with a court order to appear for a background report, Turner said he couldn't get a ride.
When the judge asked why he hadn't paid his child support, Turner said he couldn't get a job because he couldn't get a ride.
The judge ordered Turner, when he is released from prison, to begin paying $31,773 in restitution for back child support.

I still feel that it is sad that a man becomes a criminal that is getting major time for not paying child support. Is that really going to benefit the child?
