The Yahoo News website reports today (May 18, 2012) that a Tennessee man -- who has fathered 30 children -- is asking the court for a break on his child support.
Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville has children with 11 different women.
The state already takes half his paycheck and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much since Hatchett is only making minimum wage. Some mothers receive as little as $1.49 a month.
The state cannot order Hatchett to stop impregnating women, because doing so does not break any laws.
