Biden's baby-mama, an Arkansas stripper, filed the paternity suit last May. On Monday afternoon, Arkansas Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer approved the tentative agreement - postponing Biden's in-court appearance originally scheduled for Wednesday.
Child support payments will begin on Feb 1, according to a copy of the order filed in the Independence County Circuit Court, which redacted the monthly amount. The final figure, however, will be determined after Biden turns over relevant financial records. He also agreed to pay support dating back to November, 2018.
"He's doing the right thing by finally stepping up and paying what he should've been paying," said Roberts' lawyer, Clint Lancaster, in a Monday statement to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on Monday, adding "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."
