I have an idea, let's move the kids to a brand new school hundreds of miles from their current lives. Take them away from their school, friends, and everything they have probably ever known. Because the most important thing is to get a tens of thousands more in alimony or child support.

The ex-wife sounds like an outstanding human being.

To be fair, they have an NBA father. I'm sure they are used to a non-sedentary life.

Well that and she was banging his teammate and the son might not be his.  Hence the divorce.

A move now basically would necessitate another move in two more years when he retires.  Not a good sign of stability on Mom's part.  Well, that and the money issue.

I'm not sure what their level of physical activity has to do with anything, but the kids have lived in Phoenix their whole lives.

Would I move my kid to a brand new school hundreds of miles away and take him away from school friends and everything he's even known (aside from his family) if it meant increasing our income by $10,000? Hell yes.

And thus, another justification for a deadbeat dad who has absolutely no excuse for not supporting the two kids he knows are his.

He is covering there education and medical expenses  I see no reason the mom being of a allegedly equal gender cannot cover the rest.

What has mom of th eyear upset is that instead of getting a lot of cash from her ex in theform of child support  that the cheating whore can spend on whatever she wants he is covering specific items that he knows are for the children.  Fark that biatch.

How did he get a divorce without child support as one of the terms? Why would she agree to that anyway? She doesn't sound to bright. Maybe he offered her a lump sum in lieu of child support and alimony and she took it and now that money is gone and she's trying to figure out a way to get some more?

Sounds like he's being kind of a dick to his kids, regardless of how many of them are from his seed and how much of a whore his ex might be.  A California judge might find that the kids got screwed in the settlement and vacate the divorce decree.  Steve Nash, you married to your babby-mommy ho again!

The rumor is the 3rd kid wasn't his. So, if the divorce was a result of her cheating and having a kid, then (I'm assuming) the terms might be pretty beneficial to him.

He is currently paying for their schooling and medical care (and probably most other things needed for them to live).

Wasn't the baby black, and he literally left her in the delivery room? It would be hard to argue he should pay child support if it was.

Yeah, that rumor was debunked a couple years ago. Not sure if Nash is being a deadbeat or his wife is just a greedy biatch. I'll be interested to see how this relocation thing plays out.

On one side, California will rape him on child support for his biological children, but, on another, paternity must be established per California law so his cheating wife's love child won't be his responsibility and she will be further dragged through the mud

I really don't think Nash is a deadbeat. Part of the reason he went to the Lakers was LA is a 45 minute flight from his kids.

Also, by-and-large, California family courts will award alimony to allow the wife to continue her current lifestyle, even if that level of income isn't sustainable for the husband.  If she stays in Arizona, that can't happen.

Well, the divorce is already finalized, right?  So I don't think alimony will be in play, but a new hearing for child support is possible.

Except the cost of living in California (and especially Los Angeles) is sky-high compared to the Phoenix metro.

So you're actually losing money on the proposition.

Way to put money in front of your kids' happiness.

Nash, under terms of a sealed divorce settlement, does not pay child support. He pays for the children's private education and health care insurance through his employer, according to testimony.

Sounds like he and his lawyer were able to get a settlement where the kids are taken care of without the mom getting hold of the money.

Nash's attorneys have indicated he would like the children to attend a public school in Manhattan Beach if a judge rules they can move. Menrath wants to send the girls to a private school that is about 25 minutes from Nash's home.

Much of the hearing Thursday focused on the testimony of an educational consultant hired by Nash. The consultant said Nash's two daughters were doing well at a Valley private school, but if they were to move it would be best for the girls to attend a public school in Manhattan Beach, where Nash lives. Nash and his ex-wife also have a young son.


Yeah, I don't know what to make of this, but if the kids are doing fine in a school that he's paying tuition for, and he's going to move back soon enough when he retires, I think this is just a ploy by the ex-wife.

She must know my former spouse or is taking lessons from her.  Mine has put my daughter through 4 major moves through 3 different provinces all in an attempt to keep my daughter and I apart. Some human beings are just terrible at being people.
 
2013-06-01 04:01:05 PM  
Quite probably the reason he is not paying a designated child support amount is that, is some states at least, alimony is tax deductible, child support is not.  It can be a win win situation for divorcing parents.

'Keepin' da biatch outta mah roll' is more important to Nash than taking care of his kids.

"Daughter1 and Daughter2, remember that Daddy always loves you to the extent of private school tuition and health insurance premiums (so he won't have to pay any big medical bills!) MaybeBastardSon, you too, because I was married to your mommy when you were squirted into her and that's the law.  Now, if Daddy has to start paying child support, you will all have to go to public schools because that is the only way for Daddy to offset any additional costs...and Daddy doesn't love any of you enough to pay for that out of pocket."

I'm not touching any of the details of his specific situation, or divorces with kids in general.  But moving a lot isn't really that traumatic for a kid, at least from anecdotal evidence.  My wife's father worked for Amtrak and their family moved across the country, back and forth, every few years.  All in all, I think it made her a better person.  She's very good at making new friends quickly, she has no fear of change, all in all she's better at social situations than me.

Where is his permanent address? It seems that he is just renting in L.A for the seasons and lives in Phoenix during the off season. If that is the case then he should have a say in wanting his kids to stay in Phoenix.

Nash has always been known as one of the most humble, and generous guys in pro sports.Granted, that's not saying much, but  I honestly don't see him being a deadbeat dad.

Nash's 'Good Guy' rep is what makes this seem so strange to me.  As noted, the health insurance really protects his assets rather than his kids, so he's basically contributing tuition and that's it.  Then again, maybe he has humongous trust funds, about which we hear nothing, already set up for the little ones.  I heard about the divorce drama but really didn't follow it.  Steve and Dirk plowed a lot of poon back when he was in Dallas, so it does make me wonder if it's really 'Evil Slut vs. Righteous Steve' or 'She got caught vs. He didn't'.

Some married couples can really get hateful and spiteful .Sad when there are kids involved. My parents always complained to me about how the other ruined their life. What am I, your ref?
