Chris Bosh Scores Huge Win in Child Support Case

Is Miami Heat player Chris Bosh a deadbeat dad? It sure looks like it judging by the court battle his ex-girlfriend Allison Mathis is waging against him. However, Bosh won a major victory against her in the Texas courthouse. A judge ruled that the Florida based star can claim Texas residency. You might be wondering, “why is Texas residency a victory for Bosh in his child support battle?” If the Miami Heat star was found to be a resident of Florida (which for all intents and purposes, he is) he could see his monthly child support payments skyrocket from a mere $2,700 to almost $30,000. According to Texas law, he is paying what the courts deem necessary and no adjustments to the child support order are needed.

Mathis and Bosh were a couple while he played for the Toronto Raptors. According to reports, while they were together Bosh asked his ex to have his child, and she did so with the help of fertility treatments. Now the former couple is locked in a child support battle where the former lover claims the Miami Heat champion is failing to adequately financially support their daughter.

Listening to her side of the story may make anyone believe that Bosh is reacting unfairly to Allison, but not so fast. While she does receive only $2,700 per month in child support, the multimillionaire Bosh pays ALL daycare expense, medical and dental bills, and developmental and extracurricular activities for their three-year old daughter Trinity. In addition, the Miami Heat star has set up a college fund for his daughter. As perhaps the most stunning show of support for both his ex and their child, Bosh gave Mathis a lump sum of $250,000. At this time, there is no word on how Mathis used the quarter of a million dollar gift. Yet, she is claiming that since becoming recently laid off, she can no longer live on the $2,700 per month and she’s in danger of losing her home.
