Hunter Biden — the son of President Joe Biden — is apparently asking the state to cut his child support payments intended for his love child, according to new court documents.
The lawyers have cited both changes to his income and changes to state law.

First Son Hunter Biden, 52, fathered the child in 2018 after an affair with onetime stripper Lunden Roberts, according to the timeline established by court documents.
He’s said that he was still dating his brother’s widow at the time.
Neither the president nor his son has met the child, according to the mother’s legal team.
“She’s a happy, healthy, beautiful little girl that looks like a cross between her mother with some Biden splashed in,” Clint Lancaster, the attorney for Roberts, told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Wednesday.
“Does extremely well except for the fact that her father has nothing to do with her and her grandfather has nothing to do with her. She’s never met either one.”

Hunter Biden’s legal team spelled out its argument in a court filing obtained by the New York Post.
“Since the entry of the existing child support order there has been a substantial material change in the Movant’s [Hunter Biden’s] financial circumstances, including but not limited to his income, such that the child support calculation is not in compliance with [an agreement from July 2020],” Biden’s lawyers wrote in a court filing from Sept. 12.
“This situation justifies and necessitates granting this motion for the Court to set child support… at such other amount as the Court may determine is appropriate.”
Hunter Biden’s lawyers want to renegotiate child support not only because of Biden’s personal finances, but also because of a new law governing child support.
“Like many other individuals whose child support obligations were calculated before the new guidelines took effect, Mr. Biden has asked the court to review the existing child support determination and to establish an amount of child support that complies with the current guidelines and circumstances,” Brent M. Langdon, Biden’s lawyer, said in a statement to the Democrat-Gazette.
Some insiders remain unsympathetic to the president’s son.
“Hunter’s going to be raked over the coals on this one,” one insider told DailyMail.com.
“If he thinks Lunden is just going to acquiesce to any claim of dire circumstances he needs to think again. Not being part of your child’s life is one thing – not that Lunden would ever want that – but not supporting her financially as he should is quite another. And where was he living again? Oh yes, a fancy house in Malibu – one of the richest towns in the country.”
Hunter Biden has disclosed little about his finances. He remains under federal investigation in Delaware for his controversial business dealings.
“Ultimately, this is going to require us to look deeply, more deeply, into Hunter’s finances,” Lancaster, the mother’s attorney, told the Democrat-Gazette.
“I’m going to want to have a deposition with Mr. Biden. Like last time, I’m going to bring my forensic accountant to the deposition, unless the judge tells me I can’t.”
