    Lawyer must pay $28,000 a month in child supportCourt sides with Atlanta mother of Florida multimillionaire's twinsBy BETH WARRENThe Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionPublished on: 10/30/07
    When Atlanta resident Diana Gowins gave birth to twins fathered by a married multimillionaire, she felt her children deserved the finer things in life.
    The father, high-profile Florida-based attorney Willie Gary, gave his former lover money for the twins, but when he felt she was misusing the child support, he took her to court in November 2005. Gary convinced Fulton County Superior Court Judge Cynthia Wright However, the Georgia Court of Appeals issued a decision Friday siding with the mother, tossing out the judge's order to reduce the father's payments.
    "It's a big decision," Gowins' attorney, Randy Kessler, said Tuesday after receiving a copy of the appellate court's ruling. Kessler said he faxed a letter to Gary on Tuesday afternoon demanding that he pay about $300,000 to Gowins by Friday to get caught up and then resume monthly payments of $28,000, the amount he initially agreed to pay. Although $28,000 a month may sound high, Kessler said, Gary makes more than $13 million a year, so his payments are comparable to a man with an annual salary of $130,000 paying $280 a month for their twins.
    "He agreed to it," Kessler said. "He can afford it. He can't just change his mind."
    Gary's Atlanta attorney, Kenny Schatten, said he is considering appealing to the Georgia Supreme Court.
    "I just look at this decision [by the appellate court] as a small hurdle," he said.
    Schatten said Gary only challenged how much he pays for his 6-year-old daughter and son after he discovered that Gowins stopped putting money into a college fund and spent much of the cash on herself. Gary's attorneys have accused Gowins, who lives in a $600,000 home in south Atlanta, of splurging on designer clothes, a Steinway piano, cruises without the kids and a tummy tuck. She also spent thousands on private school tuition and diamonds for her oldest child, a teenage daughter from a previous relationship, Gary argued in court documents.
    The Fulton judge told Gowins, a former nurse, to go to work and watch her lavish spending, but she refused, saying she has a right to be a stay-at-home mom.
    Oh Please! :eek::mad: This is not your average stay at home mom! She must have some kind of Golden Pussy because otherwise $28,000 a month is excessive.
    If she was a nurse when she met this guy how did she afford a $600,000 home? I know there are some expensive private schools in Atlanta; but $14,000 per child per month?

    I think the court should appoint a DMM - Daily Money Manager because she could live very comfortably with her children in a house not an apartment for under $28,000 a month. Hell, I've had jobs where I didn't make that in a year!

    She should be required to contribute to their college fund every month. :mad:

    I have to say women like her make me sick because they make it that much more difficult for women like myself to find a nice guy.

    I think this she was a gold digger from the start, this is exactly what she was aiming for, and as for the 28,000 a month... thats just dumb, unless it is going for the kids college fund or a trust fund.

    I'd bet she is upset that he left, so she wants to spend the money to make him mad and it's working. He's mad that he got stuck in the situation and had to get a divorce, so he wants to get back at her. I doubt much of it is motivated by the concern for the children. If I had $13 million a year, I think I'd pay the $28,000/month and not worry about it. I just hope the children can grow up and not be emotionally damaged by it all.

    This is nuts. I don't care how much money the guy makes, there's no way that $28,000 a month is necessary for child rearing. He agreed to pay that amount earlier and found out that his ex was using the money on herself (of course, how could you spend that much on your kids anyway?). He should be allowed to amend his decision.

    I think the whore should have to put every last penny of that into something for her children, its child support not mommy support.

    Ideally there should be a court appointed trustee who will administer the funds to be sure that the children are the beneficiaries of the money. Certainly the mother should have some of it to provide for daily necessities. She should not be handed a wad of cash every month! What was this judge thinking?

    The children deserve every opportunity that the lawyer's legitimate children should have and it doesn't sound like this mother can provide that.

    dumbass rich folk with too much money im afraid. The guy doesnt want the hassle, probably doesnt really care about the kids either. He thinks oh for fuck sake just take the cash and stay the hell out my life! Now he owes her and the kids nothing.

    Meanwhile brazen bitch can sit and gloat about how much cash shes made herself and sit poolside all day drinking cocktails and fucking the cabana boy.

    Its just standard issue trailer trash but with money

    They're the children of both parents, however she's the one who's been left holding the baby, why shouldn't she receive maintenance payments commensurate with his income while the kids are minors? That's a lot of money but he's not a car mechanic so why should he be allowed to get out of his marriage free of kids and free of the responsibility to contribute what is only in line with his income.

    Inline with HIS income. So a man makes good decisions in life and manages to make a good dollar and then you get the woman trying to take it. She couldn't make her own money so she looked for a millionaire to take from, only in America. They should have a max payout per child for living expenses in my opinion. I agree he should pay, but $28,000 a month is ridiculous. Thats $330,000yr, she couldn't even make a third of that on her own. Another woman thinking she deserves the world because she had a baby. No wonder men don't like to commit!!!!!!!

    Why shouldn't she receive payments commensurate with his income? It would keep gold diggers away from wealthy men. Why didn't she fuck the guy at mcdonalds making minimum wage, not enough to go around???? Woman always hunt for the man with deep pockets no doubt.

    The point isn't that she's getting the payout, it's that the payout is for his children. Why should anyone have an income of $13 million a year and think they can pay $200 a week for his children. He had the good sense to manage to make millions, he should have used the same good sense in choice of a wife, and we don't know what the circumstances of their marriage were, we're automatically jumping on her when he could have led her a hell of a life. We label her a gold digger, it could well be that she was a good wife who had had enough of his womanising and neglect.

    The guy is a flake. If he REALLY wanted to fund a college education for his kids, he'd set up a trust fund to pay for the college. Lawyers do this all the time (for their own kids and for the kids of clients)

    If he'd established a college trust fund for the kids, paid into it, and THEN petitioned to reduce the other amount, maybe a judge would have listened to him.

    So I side with the judge.

    The dad is backtracking on an agreed upon payment. He's not ACTUALLY concerned about the kids.

    Who knows? You could hire twelve nannies for that crazy money. Maybe he can't get the kids.

    Hotmilf - i agree with you in that hes aobviously a douche who doesnt care about the kids.

    SpoiledPrincess - I see your point but the case says the guy wasnt happy with how the ex wife was spending the money..i.e not on the kids!!
    Women might be "entitled" to recieving some money from the father of their child, BUT remember that the money is for the child, NOT a new rolex or a holiday to the caribbean! Which faaaar more often than not is the sole reason behind these whole "child benefit" charades.

    Wifey has become accustomed to a way of life and wants to maintain it by any means

    $25,000.00 should be applied in a trust fund for the twins until they reach 21 years os age. I think she can raise two kids with $3000.00 if she is working nherself. My parents are multi millionaires, it did not take that much money each month to raise us..

    That case pales in the race Divorcing for Dollars. Billionaire Kirk Kerkorian was not even the father of Lisa Bonder's child yet ended up paying tens of thousand of dollars a month in child support. The two were married a total of twenty-eight days.
