Former NFL star faces lawsuit over divorce settlement

On Behalf of | Aug 9, 2017 | Divorce

There are certain issues that both sides have to address when an Ohio couple goes through a divorce. The division of property, retirement assets and even debt accrued during the marriage will need to be decided, as well as payment amounts for spousal and child support (when applicable) are just a few of the concerns that will have to be resolved upon the termination of the marriage. The wife of retired NFL defensive end, Jason Taylor, claims she is having problems getting what she is owed, according to their divorce agreement.

The two were married for 14 years and had three children together before they divorced just over two years ago. Taylor’s wife, Katina Thomas, claims her ex has not paid her $3.4 million from their $8.67 million arrangement. She says she has tried many times over to get him to pay her the money that is rightfully hers but that he ignores her attempts.

Thomas has reacted by filing a lawsuit in an effort to get the money from her ex. Taylor does make his monthly child support payments of $4,000 each month, and Thomas claims he has more than enough assets to pay her the money she is owed. A report on the matter did not give a response from Taylor, who used to play for the Miami Dolphins.

A divorce is not often granted without some type of hindrance. Even the most amicable separations can leave the couple with confusion and uncertainty. An attorney who has a thorough knowledge of the divorce laws in Ohio can help his or her client understand the impact of the decisions that will be made during this time.
