Hunter Biden is taking a new approach to his impending legal and political disaster that is his child support case in Arkansas.
Hunter knocked up a stripper and denied he was the father for a long time. The woman eventually got a DNA test and Hunter was named as the father.
He has been fighting the case ever since – the woman wants to see his financials to determine the amount he should pay in child support and he is trying to delay this until after the election.
Now, he is blaming missing a key court date on the coronavirus and that his new wife is expecting a child soon.
From Fox News:
Additionally, Biden’s legal team argues he should not be held in contempt for failing to turn over a slew of financial documents related to child support. Republicans have said the information could contain damaging evidence of the younger Biden’s overseas business dealings and possible corruption.
“Defendant’s wife’s due date is imminent,” Biden’s request for continuance reads. “Defendant will supplement this motion as soon as possible with an affidavit of his wife’s treating physician.”
Additionally, “it is unsafe for the Defendant to travel, as travel restrictions have been implemented both domestically and internationally, particularly on airlines, due to the Coronavirus. Setting aside personal endangerment, Defendant reasonably believes that such travel unnecessarily exposes his wife and unborn child to this virus.”
Coverage from various media outlets — including Fox News, The New York Times, NPR and The New York Post — has led to “physical risks and logistics difficulties with travel to Arkansas,” the motion continues.
It notes that Biden has already agreed to pay an undisclosed monthly amount of child support, retroactive to November 2018. That agreement came only after Independence County Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer threatened to hold him in contempt, and led to a brief suspension in contempt proceedings. However, Meyer emphasized that she still had “insufficient” documentation to determine Biden’s financial capacity to support the child.
As something of an olive branch, Biden’s team notes in its new motion that it “has no objection to entry of an order continuing the temporary support for another nine months and rescheduling the deposition and hearing at the end of that period” — this would be after the 2020 presidential election.
