Child support payments are often levied against fathers following a split, but the amount of money that is requested may sometimes not be near what the man is able to pay due to their current employment situation.

Terrell Owens, a former NFL star wide receiver, could be one of these fathers, as he has asked a judge to lower the amount that he is currently paying, a prominent gossip publication reported.

Owens, who is currently not on an NFL roster, wants to reduce the payments due to the fact that he is not receiving a paycheck. A representative for the former star told the news source that he is simply asking for a reasonable adjustment.

“His child support payments should mirror his income today and not be based on his income from over four years ago,” the representative told the news provider.

CBS Sports reported that the former NFL star missed a child support modification hearing due to his efforts to get onto a team, and the lawyers for the child’s mother have refused to reschedule.
