A settlement between Hunter Biden and the mother of one of his children has now reportedly resulted in the closure of his child support lawsuit in Arkansas.
The file was made public on Thursday.
According to court documents, the matter was resolved, putting an end to the process that started in 2019 as a paternity issue.
When a DNA test revealed that Biden was the father, he first denied paternity, but in 2020 he agreed to start paying $20,000 a month in child support.
Biden sought to lower the monthly payments in this disagreement. Based on the court documents, it is unclear what his new payments will be.
He did succeed in avoiding a contempt hearing where, if the court thought he had obstructed the mother’s attempts to collect financial information, he may have been subject to penalties or perhaps jail time.
Biden will have to give his daughter several paintings as part of the agreement, and she will be free to decide whether to retain them or sell them.
A trial was planned for late July to decide whether to modify the terms of child support.
