Alonso Krangle LLP, an experienced plaintiffs’ law firm, announce that they are representing a New York woman in a Paternity Petition against Herschel Walker, a former running back with the National Football League (NFL). According to an April 23rd filing in New York County Family Court, the Petitioner is seeking a declaration of paternity, order of support and further relief as may be deemed appropriate on behalf of her son with Mr. Walker. (Docket No. P-18821-13)
Herschel Walker, is a former NFL running back where he played for such teams as the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants. Prior to his NFL career, Mr. Walker played college football for the University of Georgia where he won the Heisman trophy in 1982, and was later inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. After college Mr. Walker started his professional football career with the New Jersey Generals in the United States Football League (USFL). In addition, Herschel Walker competed in the 1992 Winter Olympics in the Two-Man Bobsled event, finishing seventh, and is also a professional mixed martial arts fighter (MMA).
According to the filing, the Petitioner had a relationship with Mr. Walker between November 1, 2008 and September 16, 2011, during which time she became pregnant. Her son with Mr. Walker was born on May 31, 2012 in New York County. A hearing on the matter has been scheduled for June 4, 2013 in New York County Family Court, according to the Petition.
According to Andres Alonso, partner with the law firm Alonso Krangle, “The child’s mother is a graduate student at Columbia University struggling to make ends meet. Unfortunately, Mr. Walker has thus far decided not to take full financial responsibility for the care of his son. We hope that with the filing of the petition Mr. Walker will finally acknowledge the true extent of his support obligations.”
