Divorce can sometimes be extra difficult when children are involved. Between child custody battles to paying child support, kids are often caught in the middle of a divorce. For most divorcing parents, the issue of raising their children is still a major concern that requires attention. In many cases, child support is legally required for one parent to pay until the child turns 18. When more children are involved, the amount of money paid each month typically increases.
Child support can become quite expensive the more children one has. Imagine having 22 kids with 14 different mothers, child support payments could easily soar into the four digits a month. This is a reality for one Tennessee man. The 33-year-old father is unable to pay child support to all the mothers of his children. For years, the state of Tennessee has paid more than $7,000 each month to care for his children. Now, the man could potentially face heavy prison time if he is still unable to pay.
