Florida footballer facing alimony suit

Just in time for his induction into the Football Hall of Fame, one football player is facing a lawsuit. Jason Taylor, formerly a Miami Dolphins star, is being sued by his ex-wife for an alleged default in alimony payments. The case is active in the Florida courts. A recent news story gives more details about the couple and their divorce. 

Jason Taylor joined the Miami Dolphins in 1997, and quickly rose in popularity. In addition to his football proficiency, he became know as a wholesome, clean-cut individual. He married his now-ex, Katina, in 2000. The marriage was not without its drama, including a fight with his adoptive father who initially opposed the marriage. 

The couple filed for divorce in 2006, but they rallied and the marriage survived. Katrina worked as the head of the footballer's charitable foundation for many years. In 2015, the two filed for divorce again, and the settlement was finalized one month later. A new complaint was filed by Katrina this June, alleging a lapsed alimony payment. 

The alimony agreement was a lump sum -- Katina was to receive $8.67 million. The ex-wife claims that she has not yet received the full amount and is still owed $3.4 million. The Florida football player has yet to respond to the allegations in court, but it is likely that he is prepapring his response alongside his attorney. A divorce attorney is trained to handle all aspects of the divorce process, and can help individuals settle disputes with alimony payments as well as other divorce concerns.
