Former NBA player, Dennis Rodman has now been sentenced after being found guilty on four counts of contempt for failure to pay child support. He has been sentenced to 104 hours of community service and has also been placed on three years of unofficial probation in order to make sure that he continues to pay child and spousal support that he owes.
Rodman is accused of owing child and spousal support to his ex-wife in amounts that exceed over $800,000 and legal issues on the matter began in 2004.
The charges come from 2009 and 2010 when Rodman was expected to pay nearly $50,000 a month in support. This payment has now been reduced to $4,500 a month.

Singer Usher Raymond and ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, are currently in the middle of a child custody battle that a judge has recently sent to mediation.
The couple entered a Fulton County Courtroom this morning where a judge told them to take time today and try to hash out a private mediation agreement.
They were asked to work things out quickly and reconvene before the judge later this afternoon. They are caught up in a dispute about how custodial time will be divided and what child support arrangements are to be made.
The couple currently shares custody, but Tameka is seeking full custody because she claims that Usher uses drugs. He denies this and has requested more time with his children.

A trend that is now being seen in child custody cases is whether or not the parent smokes cigarettes. A recent study conducted by an anti-tobacco group was done and the results show evidence of this trend growing.
According to results, at least 18 states have used cigarette smoking as a factor in child custody cases. In many cases, judges have ordered that parents can not smoke in front of the child, especially while driving in the car.
In other cases, judges have ordered that the parents can not smoke in the home 24 to 48 hours before the child comes to stay. In some cases, visitation rights have been changed because the parent was smoking tobacco in front of the child.
