Walsh, Ex-Wife to Make Child Support Cases Before Judge
Walsh, Ex-Wife to Make Child Support Cases Before Judge

The back-and-forth, he said/she said disagreement over Rep. Joe Walsh's delinquent child support payments may soon be resolved.

The conservative north suburban congressman and his ex-wife, Laura, will appear before a judge next month to make their best cases.

"My client wants this resolved," Joe Walsh’s attorney, Janet Boyle, told Cook County Judge Raul Vega on Friday.

The Chicago Sun-Times in July broke the story that Walsh, who has taken to YouTube to verbally lash the president about fiscal responsibility, owed more than $100,000 in child support to his ex-wife and their three children.
 
Walsh concedes he didn't make child support payments between 2005 and 2010, but said it was all a misunderstanding. Walsh maintains he and his ex-wife had a verbal agreement that he didn't have to pay, a claim Laura Walsh denies.

Walsh, a freshman from Fox Lake, now makes $175,000 per year, but throughout the past several has allegedly claimed he was living in poverty.
