Laila Ali:

Keep My Daddy

Out of Your Divorce!

6/24/2009 9:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Laila Ali is fighting her husband's ex-wife, who now wants to drag Muhammad Ali into her child support battle.

Laila Ali, Muhammad, Ali
Laila's hubby, former NFL star Curtis Conway, has been embroiled in a financial battle with his ex, Leoria Sanamu Conway. Leoria wants more child support and she's apparently trying to prove Conway is now rolling in cash courtesy of his wife. 

Leoria is trying to subpoena Laila's financial info, including "her inheritance or potential inheritance." Laila and her hubby have asked the judge to block the request, arguing it's a blatant invasion of privacy and "clearly designed to harass and burden Ms. Ali."

They've been battling it out in court all week. So far, no ruling.

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahaha

Where are all of these people who support wives receiving huge amounts of money in child support and spousal support?

I read a lot of "it's Laila's money" and "Those kids are not Laila's responsibility" but when some women is asking for $10k a month in child support and/or spousal support, these boards are lit up with people decrying "but it's for the kids" or "she deserves that money"'. Ahahahahahahaha. Where are you now????? Well more money for child support, regardless of the source, would be in the best interest of the children right? Isn't that what you say?

This is the inherent flaw in our system of family law. Laila marries a man and files a joint income tax return. According to the law, that joint reported income is HIS reported income, regardless of who really earned it. Child support is calculated based on income so therefore, their combined marital income is what is used for the basis of calculating child support so in actually, Laila may have to pay money to a support a child that isn't hers.

Is this fair? Hell no it isn't fair, but until our family law codes are changed, this is how it is. I just wish more people would express similar outrage when some women who did nay a thing during a marriage asks a Judge for spousal support or an enormous amount in child support.

California Dept. of Child Support Services FAQ's
Q: My ex-spouse has remarried and has another family to support. How does this affect the support owed to our children?
A: The amount of the child support order may be decreased if the other parent also must support children from another relationship.
The only time it even mentions a step-parent's income is in the event of adoption...

Believe me, I've tried to get my ex's Wife #3's income information, since he's self-employed and hides his money, but the Courts will NOT include her income for the purpose of support...If you've been ordered as a step-parent to provide your income information for the Courts to include in the mix, seek legal help...Your rights are being violated...

C'mon Harvey, weigh in here...After all, YOU'RE A LAWYER...

Move to Minnesota Laila...
If a parent has remarried, the new spouse’s income cannot be considered in calculating the needs
or resources of the parent. Minn. Stat. §§ 518A.29, para. (f); 518A.39, subd. 2, para. (d)(1).

Well if they are in California there is no need to worry what-so-ever about inheritance or potential inheritance because in California (thank goodness) inheritance is sole and separate property if it is left to her (hence "her" not "them"). What a flippin gold-digger to even consider trying to get more money because he married someone whom "may" inherit money. How sad!

Laila's income from her father would go to her household, the household where her husband lives, therefore this can be considered by the family court judge as "household income". Household income is considered in the parent financial worksheets when calculating child support. This will all depend on the family court judge whether or not he wants to consider this. Family court judges have complete discretion to do any thing they want in their courts. Civil law does not apply in Family court. If the judge rules in Conway's exs favor, Laila and her husband can appeal, but appeals usually are not successful in family court. With that said, women and manginas shouldn't be complaining about Conway's ex wanting more child support. These feminist laws are what women wanted and then they come in here and whine when a female is being affected negatively by their own laws that they themself support. I hope that Laila loses every penny that she gets from her father to Conway's ex. Maybe if this would happen to enough females and manginas, they would run to the state legislators to get these laws repealed.

yes her money does have alot to do with his child support case. once you marry your money goes together and yes his ex can get more if lalia has dough. the inheritence i believe can't be touched by anyone not even her hubby. but i thnk it is only some states. not sure. but this is why you never marry a person who has a child support order. believe me they can get your money by making the non custodial parent pay more money which will eventually tear into the spouse's money.

The piece that you are all arguing over and disagreeing about is that it all depends on STATE LAW. There is no federal law for child support so it is decided by the state. It depends on the state that the child support case is being filed.

This woman is sooooooo stupid. First of all the last I checked it was her and Curtis that made the children not her and Layla or her and Mr. Ali. She is trying to take away from the child that Curtis and Layla have together and that is not fair. Second if that is the case and she wants to use Layla financial records then any man she is dealing with should have to provide his financial records too. Instead of trying to make the life of her ex-husband miserable she should concentrate on her children and get it together. Be grateful that she is getting the money to "maintain the lifestyle she has become accustomed to" and stop trying to upgrade. If she continues this mess my advice to Layla and Curtis is to get custody of the children and make her pay child support.

ACTUALLY LAILA'S FINANCIAL INFO IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE SINCE THEY ARE MARRIED LAILA'S MONEY IS HER HUSBAND'S MONEY TOO, AND HE MAY ACTUALLT BE IN A BETTER POSITION FINANCIALLY NOW TO PAY MORE CHILD SUPPORT FOR HIS CHILDREN...NOT SAYING SHE IS RIGHT THOUGH...LAILA MARRIED HIM, AND NOW SHE MOST LIKELY WILL HAVE TO HELP PAY TO SUPPORT HIS OTHER CHILDREN TOO.
