Hunter Biden Settles Child Support Case Days Before Court Appearance
Paternity suit agreement approved Monday
Former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, has settled his child support dispute just days before he was due to appear in court to explain his failure to turn over requested financial information.
Since last May, Biden has been embroiled in the suit, filed by former stripper Lunden Alexis Roberts, the mother of his 1-year-old child.
The suit was settled and approved Monday afternoon by Arkansas Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer, delaying Biden's in-person court appearance to decide whether he should be held in contempt of court for failing to submit his tax records.
According to a copy of the order filed in the Independence County Circuit Court in Arkansas, Biden has agreed to pay monthly child support starting at the beggining of February this year.
The court said the final figure would be determined after Biden has turned over his financial records.
Additionally, Biden will also be required to pay support retroactively, dating back to November 2018.
The agreement delayed motions to hold Biden in contempt that was filed by Roberts’s attorneys last week.
Robert's attorneys claim Biden failed to provide information ordered by the court, which included tax documents, business names, and sources of income for the past five years.
The deal also states contempt motions will be considered during the next scheduled pretrial hearing in March and will be withdrawn if the Biden submits documents by the deadline.
An attorney for Roberts welcomed the deal.

Clint Lancaster said in a statement:
"He's doing the right thing by finally stepping up and paying what he should've been paying."
"He's going to begin paying monthly child support. He's going to pay retroactive child support back to November of 2018. And he's going to pay attorney's fees and costs."
In December, Robert's demanded Biden admitted to how much he was paid by the notoriously corrupt Ukraine energy company Burisma Holdings, according to reports.
It has been widely reported Biden was earning $83,000 a month for his role at the Ukrainian energy company during the time his father was in office as vice president and oversaw overseas operations in Ukraine.
Hunter Biden was hired as a member of the gas and oil company's board, despite having zero experience in the industry for the job role.
