July 2023 Editorial: Athletes: Divorce & Child Support

Jul 1, 2023 | Editorials

It is quite common for professional athletes, as it is with other high profile public figures, to face a multitude of challenges when it comes to divorce and child support. Given their substantial earnings from sports and endorsements, their fame but also demanding sports schedules, divorce can become a very complicated matter for them, requiring expert help and guidance. As we have seen through numerous real-life examples of professional athletes, financial matters, asset division and child support can lead to disputes since there is a lot at stake. Heavy schedules and traveling can also negatively impact co-parenting arrangements, leading to strained relationships.

This month at the Money Smart Athlete Blog, we will explore the challenges of co-parenting for athletes, as well as ways they can protect their assets through prenuptial agreements. Additionally, we will look into the complexities of athletes’ divorce settlements, and we will provide child support guidelines for professional athletes.
