Woman needs child support to feed her kids at McDonald’s
You have got to be kidding me. This mother wants high child support to help feed her kids at McDonald’s. I swear, there must be something in the fries at McDonald’s for a mother to think she’d win a court case that demanded weekly child support funds to sustain her kids’ Golden Arches habit.
What is happening “down under?” At first, I thought this was another story about fat America, but it’s in Australia. Maybe there is a world-wide fat epidemic.
The Australian mother demanded $1450 per-week to cover living expenses for herself and two children, including a $150 a week for blue jeans, $60 a week for McDonald’s binging and $100 weekly for gifts.
Evelyn Bender, the federal magistrate who oversaw the case, told the woman that she needed to seriously alter her lifestyle and that her requests were excessive. Instead of the $1,450 per week, Bender ordered the husband pay $800 a week.
