Former mistress files paternity lawsuit against Miguel Cabrera

Children born as a result of affairs is not a new occurrence. Some parents in Texas who have children born out of wedlock often turn to family law attorney to seek financial support from the other parent. A woman in another state has filed a paternity lawsuit against Major League Baseball star, Miguel Cabrera, requesting more child support than she currently has been given per month. 

The 35-year-old woman was apparently a mistress with whom Cabrera had a relationship for several years. Until recently, the relationship was relatively secret. Reportedly, the woman was married to another man when she began her affair with Cabrera. In the years of her relationship with the baseball player, she had a son and daughter that Cabrera is listed as the father on their birth certificates.

Earlier this year, Cabrera apparently bought the woman a $1 million mansion and has been voluntarily paying her $12,000 a month as child support. According to the lawsuit, his former mistress claims the child support is not enough to support the lifestyle she wants her children to have. She believes her children should have a quality of life similar to Cabrera's other three children born in his marriage. An attorney in Florida, where the case is pending, estimated that she may be entitled to as much as $100,000 a month in child support. 

In a perfect world where relationships end peacefully, parents would be able to agree to an amount of child support on their own. Unfortunately, it's not a perfect world. Many parents find that the advice and guidance of a family law attorney in Texas is helpful when processing the facts in a paternity lawsuit. Lawyers can assist in gathering needed information to make a case for financial support and meeting the needs of the children.
