In early December, it was reported that NBA player Joe Johnson signed a child support agreement stipulating that he would pay his son's mother $2,500 each month. The terms of the agreement also stated that he would pay for the woman to move to New York City and purchase a new vehicle. In addition, the Brooklyn Nets player who is familiar to Illinois basketball fans must subsidize up to $5,000 of her home rental costs each month.
As part of his child support obligations, Johnson will pay for his son to attend private school, participate in extracurricular activities and maintain medical insurance coverage. Reports did not specify whether the woman would have to contribute to these expenses. If the man is traded from the Nets to a different NBA franchise, he must also relocate the woman and son to the new city at that time.
