NBA Lakers Star Steve Nash Battles Ex-Wife in Court

By Leslie Fineberg on June 7, 2013

Current member of the Los Angeles Lakers and former star of the Phoenix Suns, Steve Nash divorced Alejandra Amarilla Menrath in the latter part of 2011. As reported by The Arizona Republic and published by The Sacramento Bee, the settlement does not include child support. Nash and his ex-wife are the parents of twin daughters and a young son.

Family law attorneys like those at the Chicago firm of Nottage and Ward understand that negotiation and litigation of custody and financial issues can be complex, whether their clients are famous, or have simply worked hard to build a business or train for a career so their children can be well provided for.

Although Steve Nash does not currently pay child support, that could change if Menrath is permitted to move the children to California. She needs the permission of a Phoenix, Arizona Family Court judge in order to be able to relocate the children.

Through his employer, the Los Angeles Lakers, Steve Nash does currently pay for the three children’s health insurance as well as tuition for their private-school education.

If the Family Court judge in Phoenix decides in favor of Nash’s ex-wife, Alejandra Amarilla Menrath, and she is allowed to relocate the children, attorneys believe there is a likely possibility that she could petition a California court for more support for the children. Nash made $8.9 million this past season and is scheduled to make in excess of $9 million during each of the next two seasons.
