If a California court issues a ruling, the parties involved must fully adhere to its terms. With regard to child support, both parents must act in accordance with their co-parenting and payment plan that the court has issued or approved at its discretion. It is never a good idea to obtain a settlement, then not follow through on the agreed-upon terms. This appears to be what is happening in the case of R & B music star Chris Brown.
The mother of Brown's young daughter says she has made repeated attempts to achieve an amicable agreement with her former partner regarding financial care of their child. She said it is frustrating that Brown agreed to mediation, then failed to respond when notices were sent to him regarding upcoming session dates. Brown's ex also said the court ordered him to pay more than $17,000 in owed child support this past February, but he has apparently not obeyed the order.
