It’s a sheer victory for Miami ‘Heat’ player Chris Bosh who won the residency battle in his child support war with ex-girlfriend Allison Mathis. According to the Miami Herald, an Orange County Circuit judge recently deemed the ball player a resident of Texas, affording him the right to pay Mathis $2,600 per month in child support instead of the $30,000 she was seeking.
Allison previously petitioned the Florida courts for $30,000 per month from Bosh for their 4-year-old daughter Trinity, claiming that $2,600 per month was not enough to raise their daughter comfortably. Mathis even told the courts, as well as several media outlets, that she sought government assistance and was facing foreclosure due to the minimal amount that Bosh was forking out.
Bosh, in return, claimed residency in Texas to avoid paying $30,000 per month, claiming to already pay for Trinity’s medical expenses as well as bills associated with school and extracurricular activities. Trinity is Chris and Allison’s only child together. Bosh has two children in all.
