In 2013, Aldon Smith was one of the best defensive players in the NFL and was making millions of dollars a year and expecting to make millions of dollars a year for many years to come. Based on his income, Smith was ordered to pay $9,007 a month in child support to the mother of their then-infant son.

Since then, Smith’s career has fallen apart. He is currently suspended by the league indefinitely, and as a result he is asking for a reduction in child support.
