Woman Wins Child Support from Ex-Husband 50 Years After Divorce | PEOPLE.com
“I was glad to pay Ms. Anderson the child support that was owed and I wish her only the best in the future,” Lenhart told PEOPLE through his attorney, Jaime Cage. “We had an informal agreement that I was operating off of after our divorce, but when Ms. Anderson filed her motion in 2018 to collect the $35,000 in principal plus interest, I hired a private investigator to locate her so I could offer her payment. I am pleased we were able to reach an agreement.”
The article goes on to include the words of the opposing attorney:
“One of Ms. Anderson’s goals in pursuing this matter was to pave a path for other single parents out there who believe they have no recourse when it comes to facing an ex who has evaded their financial responsibilities under the law,” she says. “Friends of Ms. Anderson have shared with her that they are considering taking similar action, and many other single parents have reached out to our office after learning of Ms. Anderson’s success. She has truly become a superhero for single parents.”
Indeed, Ms. Anderson does strike me as a superhero. I may write more on this subject in the days/weeks ahead.
