Antonio Cromartie

Antonio Cromartie Regular readers of our New Jersey legal blog will recall the story of  Antonio Cromartie, the former New York Jets cornerback who fathered 13 children and  paid $336,000 annually in child support. The latest? He recently  signed on with the Indianapolis Colts and a portion of Cromartie's $3 million salary was reportedly designated for child support arrears according to TMZ: Antonio Cromartie took his $3 million deal from the Colts and immediately used it to settle a child support dispute with a baby mama … and avoided a possible arrest in the process. Cromartie was delinquent on child support payments to Rosemita Pierre — the mother of Alonzo, his oldest child … aka #1 of 13. According to docs, AC was ordered to pay her $4,000 per month, starting in January 2016 but failed to do so. Remember: If Cromartie was litigating his case in New Jersey, as set forth in Appendix IX-B, the New Jersey Child Support Guidelines do not apply in instances when the parties earn a  net income of less than $170 per week ($8,840 per year) or more than $3,600 per week ($187,200 per year). Courts refer to these circumstances as “off-guidelines” cases.
