INDEPENDENCE COUNTY, ARKANSAS: In a recent court filing for the Arkansas child support case, Hunter Biden’s baby mama Lunden Roberts claimed that the first son is pretending to be a financially struggling artist to avoid paying child support for their daughter, Navy Joan Roberts, while “living lavishly” and allegedly having access to $850 per hour attorneys. Roberts’ attorney, Clinton Lancaster, reportedly ripped Biden in a 12-page discovery motion filed in Independence County, Arkansas, on Thursday, April 27.

“Mr. Biden claims to be nothing more than a Yale educated attorney/artist who is somewhat financially destitute and needs his child support adjusted,” Lancaster wrote, per New York Post. “However, for an artist living on meager means, Mr. Biden is living lavishly,” he continued. “He travels the world on the safest and most comfortable airplane in existence — Air Force One,” Lancaster added. “He also has some of the most expensive attorneys on planet Earth,” the attorney claimed.

‘He surely must have income for child support’

In his motion, Roberts’ attorney asked the court to order Biden to reveal the payments to his four attorneys and share details of the person actually footing the bill, the New York Post reported. Biden’s team of lawyers reportedly includes longtime Democratic fixer Abbe Lowell, Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris, Chicago-based George Mesires, and Texas-based Brent Langdon.

As per court documents, Lancaster noted that attorney Lowell “charges a rate of $855 per billable hour” and said that his retention by Biden was “indicative of the defendant’s influence, prestige, and importance.” He also made similar statements about attorney Morris, the lawyer who allegedly paid off Biden's inadvertent taxes of more than $2 million. Lawyers Mesires and Langdon are also mentioned in attorney Lancaster’s motion.

“What Mr Biden has paid, or received as a contribution, for paying these elite attorneys has a definitive and quantifiable value that goes directly to his income for child support purposes,” argued Lancaster. “If Mr Biden can afford a Washington DC, Hollywood, Chicago biglaw, and the best domestic relations attorney on the Texas side of the Texarkana border, he surely must have income for child support purposes,” he added.

‘Not a basis for a reduction in support’

Biden and Roberts’ daughter was born out of wedlock in August 2018 following a 2017 affair. While the first son initially denied paternity of the child, a DNA test conducted as part of Roberts’ 2019 paternity confirmed that Biden was the father of the toddler. The lawsuit was reportedly settled in March 2020 for an undisclosed amount. However, Biden urged to reopen the case in a September 2022 motion and asked the court to reduce his child support payments, citing an alleged change in his financial situation.

As part of Roberts’ recent filing, her attorney scoffed at Biden’s notion and said, “The defendant has characterized his need for a reduction in child support on his reduced income. However, voluntarily reducing income, or hiding assets, is not a basis for a reduction in support.” The motion claimed that Biden’s payments to his lawyers would prove that there is no difficulty that a person with the last name ‘Biden’ cannot solve with a Biden-paid or funded attorney, the New York Post reported. The attorney claims that these payments will make it clear that there is respect, admiration, power, and accolades attached to the last name “Biden” instead of harassment or hardship.

“The plaintiff has evidence that the defendant has not fully disclosed his income sources, residences, assets, and property,” attorney Lancaster said. “This evidence is bolstered by the fact that the defendant refuses to provide full discovery in this matter,” he added. Biden has been ordered to appear in court next week to explain the reasoning behind his request to reduce child support payments for Roberts and their daughter.
