However, the Florida court system is still trying to force him to pay child support on the girl of $305 per month, plus the $10,000 that is already owed. The reason is because he did not challenge this issue until after the deadline, but Rodriguez said he didnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t get the paperwork until after the deadline. Rodriguez said, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“ItĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s like youĂ˘â‚¬â„˘re drowning every day.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
After the deadline, which is set in the system to protect the children, the only way to contest, according to the Center for Law and Social Policy, is Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“on the basis of fraud, duress or material mistake of fact.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
To try and resolve this issue, the judge ordered Rodriguez and the girl to take a court ordered DNA test. Rodriguez has taken his but the mother and girl did not show up to take the test. It is still currently unknown whether the girl has taken the test or not.
RodriguezĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s wife said, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“ItĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s hard when your daughter needs sneakers and you have to pay $305 or your husband goes to jail,Ă˘â‚¬Âť and that Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s just unfair.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
