This might explain his choice of roles in the past decade. This dude is taking on jobs that even Nicolas Cage and Eugene Levy would pass on.

Don't care, he was the shiz in School Ties, and that's a fact.

$900K in child support?
 Damn, the price of Froot Loops, skateboards, and tuition must have skyrocketed since the last time I looked.

I always wondered why the amount was based on previous lifestyle. If it was me I would want my kids to have enough, but it seems odd that it should be mandated that they get the best.

I think the courts always calculate a hefty percentage of your income, like 10% of your monthly income or 110% of what they used to get, whichever is what they deem you can afford. 

Also, there's an easy way to reduce that payment: get full or partial custody. Surely this is something he agreed to.

900,000 per year. Seems reasonable.

Hahahahaha oh man.  I pay like 35% a week and my ex-wife makes twice what i do.  10% is cute though.

Child support should be based on what the kids need, rather than how much the parent may be able to afford.
 
2013-02-16 07:48:42 PM

EvilEgg: I always wondered why the amount was based on previous lifestyle


Because we were farking retarded when we wrote these laws?

I mean, come on. Look at this dead beat. Can't afford to give his kid one million US$ every year??

You'd think he could cut back on his daily bottle of $2k buck chuck until his kid can afford some new shoes and a school supplies?
 
2013-02-16 07:49:33 PM
Hair plugs must be expensive.


You can buy a child's love.  It's unfair and not in the interest of a child to have one parent be much more well off than the other.  It's such an obvious concept, can't believe people don't get it.

If you hire a shiatty lawyer and don't ask for support modifications, then it's no one's fault but your own.

900 grand a year? Impressive. I dont think Brendan Frasier could make 900 grand a year if he took every role he was offered and started selling coke to the Lohan family.

Bummer -- i thought he was alright as a comedy/action lead. Hes a bit wooden but he takes roles where its not a problem or its not as noticeable.  I wondered why he wasn't getting work.

900k a year probably sounded reasonable to him when he was making millions per picture.  Good for him for being generous to his family in good times.  Now that he's not the hot commodity he once was, the payments should be reduced.
 
2013-02-16 08:20:35 PM
900k a year is farking ridiculous.  Do these kids get platinum plated braces or something?
 
2013-02-16 08:23:21 PM
Does it mean he's "broke" because he's unable to afford to pay $900k a year? If that's the case I'm beyond broke.

I was going to say that 900k a year was never reasonable. I assumed outside the Mummy films he really didn't make any of that big money we think of when we think of a hollywood star.

Then I found out he got 10 million for Bedazzled. If he got that much for that turd then he at least 5 for Monkeybone.

Dude was probably eating panda steaks and having virgins flown in to some rape cave palace in Alberta.

Sir, you did not just badmouth the cinematic treats that are Bedazzled and Monkeybone. One of these has Liz Hurley in low-cut red tops, bikinis and other things. The other has Rose McGowan in a cat costume. These movies have contributed to our culture in immensely meaningful ways.

Colour_out_of_Space: Child support should be based on what the kids need, rather than how much the parent may be able to afford.


It's also based on maintaining the lifestyle that the child is used to, provided the non-custodial parent *can* pay for it. That being said, I had a friend years ago who was living in his truck homeless due to child support payments. He had gone to court multiple times to get it reduced, and the judge literally told him that a place to live was not 'a necessity'. Mutual friends allowed him to use their apartment for the weekends he had the boys (or he'd get a cheap hotel, he NEVER had them sleep in the truck). His ex-wife cheated on him with his best friend, and made substantially more money than he did. She was doing this to him because she could, and actually felt JUSTIFIED in doing so.

I have a background in clinical psych. and his sheer farking hatred of his ex was poisoning his kids. He wasn't consciously badmouthing her, but he was doing it all the time. It was making the boys anxious. I'll tell you what a good father this man was, he listened to what I had to say, heard it, and modified his behavior. I never heard him say another bad thing about their mother in their presence again.

But my other prediction was right. Kids grew up, and figured out the real score without dad having to say a thing. They do not speak to their stepfather, and their relationship with their mother is strained because she spent those years still treating them like a tool to fark with her ex.

They adore their father, he's their hero. And he busted his ass to be a great dad in all the ways that truly matter. And it isn't money.

Anyway, I was like 19 when I knew Mark (guy with the kids) and it opened my eyes to the absolute batshiattery of the family courts. I give the same advice to everyone with kids in a breakup...do everything you possibly can for your kids, and don't discuss relationship details with them while they are kids. They don't need to know who did what to whom. They don't need to be pushed into taking any sides. The goal is supposed to be to raise healthy, sane, people who can take care of themselves and be reasonably happy. Remember?

/has no kids. Will never have any.

Not sure how it is in other states, but in Texas it takes pretty much an act of God for a father to get full custody. And if a father doesn't have full custody, his ass is paying.
