Decision reached in child support matter regarding 'SNL' alum

Sometimes, issues/disputes arise between divorced parents over child support. Sometimes, such matters end up being resolved through a court decision.

Recently, a judge reached a decision in a celebrity child support matter. The matter regarded the comedian Joe Piscopo and his ex-wife. Piscopo was a cast member of the sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live" in the early 1980's.

Piscopo and his ex-wife got married in 1997. In the 2000's, the two divorced. Piscopo and his ex-wife have three children.

According to the article on which reported this story, Piscopo has child support obligations and spousal support obligations to his ex-wife. Specifically, he is supposed to pay her $5,000 a month in child support and $10,000 a month in spousal support.

Allegedly, Piscopo fell behind in his child support payments to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars.

Recently, a hearing was held in a court in New Jersey in relation to this alleged falling behind in the payment of child support. The judge in this hearing ordered Piscopo to pay his ex-wife $10,000 in child support by Dec. 28 and to pay an extra $50 a week in child support to go towards the alleged missed child support.

As this case illustrates, child support issues/disputes sometimes end up coming before a court. How issues and disputes regarding child support are ultimately resolved can be very impactful on all of the parties involved. Thus, if a person is involved in a child support matter, having a strong advocate on one's side can be very important.
