“Be fruitful and multiply” sounds like quite the party until the child support bill arrives.
Just ask poor Desmond Hatchett, a Tennessee volunteer if there ever was one.
WREG-TV in Memphis reports Hatchett, a minimum wage worker from Knoxville, recently asked the court for help in making his child support payments. The 33-year-old man has fathered 30 children by 11 women and is having trouble keeping up with the bills.
Half of his paycheck, the maximum allowed by Tennessee law, is garnished. Some mothers receive $1.49 a month.
How did this happen?
“I had four kids in the same year. Twice,” says Hatchett, who is better with the ladies than the ladies are at picking men.
Hatchett was last in court in 2009 when he had only 21 children and he said he was “done” with making babies.
If he gets relief from making child support payments, perhaps he can use the extra cash for condoms or a vasectomy.
Or for hiring a film crew to make him a reality TV star.
