Man Has 30 kids w/ 11 women Says He Needs A Child Support Break
A man who has fathered 30 children to 11 different women is asking the courts to give him a break from paying child support.
Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville, Tennessee, has half of his pay check taken from him by the state every month and it is divided among his children.
Hatchett only makes minimum wage and some of the mothers only receive as little as $1.49 a month from him.
The oldest child is 14 years old.
When Hatchett is working, he is required to turn over 50 per cent of his wages for child support - the maximum allowed under law.
Child support payments are based in part on the ages and needs of the children.
Desmond explained to News Channel 3 how it all happened: 'I had four kids in the same year. Twice.'
Asked in a TV interview whether he can 'keep up with it all', the 33-year-old said he knows all their names, ages and birth dates.
In 2009 when he first appeared in court on charges that most of the mothers were not receiving child support, he had 21 children.
At the time, he said he was not going to father any more kids, but he ended up having nine more in the past three years.
He said: 'I didn't intend to have this many, it just happened.'
