Illinois fans of celebrities Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian may be aware that the two have been in a dispute over child support and other issues since they split up in December 2016. The two were only together for about a year, and their relationship ended within months of the birth of their daughter.
Kardashian had asked for his payments of $20,000 per month to be modified because he could no longer afford them. He said he would not be appearing on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” any longer and that he had been damaged by a restraining order Chyna filed against him in 2017. In an Instagram post that she later deleted, Chyna reportedly said she had never asked him for child support.
In March, a judge approved a new agreement between the two. Neither will pay any child support to the other. Instead, each will cover the child’s expenses when the child is with them. They will split the costs of medical care and education, and they will also alternate claiming the child on their taxes. According to one source, the two have tried to put their differences behind them and move forward with a healthier relationship as co-parents.
While child support is usually paid to a custodial parent by a noncustodial parent, there are situations, such as this one, in which neither parent pays support. Parents may also come to various agreements as to who will claim the children on taxes. For example, if there are two children, some parents agree that each will claim one of the children. When a child support agreement is in place, the office of child support enforcement may help one parent collect support if the other parent is not paying.
