William Dudley, the lawyer representing A.B. Quintanilla in his child support case, says the Grammy winner paid his child support.
“Mr. Quintanilla paid all the child support he was supposed to pay,” Dudley told reporters on Friday. “There is a legal issue regarding if there is additional amount of money owed.”
Quintanilla reportedly owes more than $87,000, according to a report from the state Attorney General’s office. That same report says the case dates back to 2012 and the last time he paid child support was in September 2015 for $16.84.
“There is a question of whether or not the mother was living with the child at the time. Those issues need to be worked out. Mr. Quintanilla was not going to pay child support to the mom when the child was living somewhere else, but those are all things we are going to work out,” Dudley added.
Quintanilla did not appear at a court hearing on August 4 over the child support case that landed him on the Nueces County Sheriff’s Office Top 10 Most Wanted list in Texas. The hearing was arranged by Dudley and the attorney was under the impression that it was unnecessary for his client to appear, but the judge disagreed and continued an arrest warrant for Quintanilla.
Dudley says his client’s prepared to pay whatever amount the court determines he owes. According to the Caller-Times, Dudley said Quintanilla is “going to pay all of the child support that he’s ordered and supposed to pay. And as soon as we know what that amount is, I have a feeling he’s going to write a cashier’s check for the full amount.
A hearing was rescheduled for August 16.
