Hunter Biden is seeking to delay an upcoming child support deposition in Arkansas until April, according to a motion filed by his lawyer Tuesday.
Attorneys for former stripper Lunden Alexis Roberts, the mother of Biden’s child, requested in an email last Monday that he appear in Little Rock next week for a deposition, but Biden said the request to appear in-person was “unduly burdensome and oppressive.”
“My client can be available April 1, 2020,” Biden’s attorney, Brent Langdon, wrote to Roberts’s attorneys, court documents show. “My client cannot be available prior to that date.”
Langdon added that a filing on Sunday by Roberts attorneys notifying that Biden’s deposition would take place on March 5 was “unnecessary” and that it served to ignite “media attention” and to unreasonably “annoy, embarrass, or oppress” Biden.
Biden’s motion was first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
If Biden’s request is granted by a judge, he would be disposed weeks after the critical South Carolina and Super Tuesday primaries for his father, former Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden previously reached a temporary child support agreement with Roberts in late January, court documents show. Biden said in a November court filing that he had “no monthly income” since May, but he’s also been renting a $12,000-per-month home in Hollywood was spotted in January by the New York Post driving a white Porsche Panamera.
