Hunter Biden has finally been forced to provide answers in a deposition concerning his finances in the child support case about his four-year-old daughter, Navy Joan Roberts.
Biden brought the case, claiming that he could not afford to pay the $20,000 per month he initially agreed to pay in child support in 2020. Biden alleged excuses like when he traveled to Ireland with his father, President Joe Biden, he had to sleep on a cot in Joe’s hotel room, and his car was repossessed. His attorneys claim he’s unemployed and receives no monthly income.
Despite such claims, Hunter lives in a California mansion in Los Angeles.
The attorneys for Lunden Roberts, the mother of Navy, accused Hunter of stealing and refusing to provide information about his finances. They even proceeded to have Hunter held in contempt for failing to turn over information to the court. That matter is scheduled to be heard on July 10, 2023. If guilty, Hunter could be jailed or forced to pay $20,000 in legal fees.
“Mr. Biden does not want to disclose his income and assets, says that he is somewhat financially destitute, while he lives on a mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, has Secret Service protection, and enjoys his time abroad (which he has also lied about in discovery),” Roberts’ lawyer Clinton Lancaster wrote in a court filing last month.
The judge in the case has demonstrated that she was not satisfied with the information provided by Hunter’s legal team, arguing that they were “misusing” the ability to redact, and ordered them to refile some of their client’s financials.
Hunter was recently questioned under oath in Little Rock, Arkansas. He flew into the state on a private plane and rode in a five-car motorcade to the courthouse. At the courthouse, Hunter was surprised by Roberts, who attended the deposition.
In a report by the Daily Mail, “Attending Hunter’s deposition would have been a strategic choice and perhaps a bad game. And why not? It’s harder for most people to be untruthful about a person in their presence.”
Roberts requested for Navy to bear the Biden family name, claiming her daughter would “benefit” from carrying a family name “now synonymous with being well-educated, successful, financially acute, and politically powerful.”
Hunter is fighting against allowing Navy to share his family’s last name. He allegedly didn’t even want to see a picture of his daughter when she was born.

Hunter is still under federal investigation by a U.S. Attorney in Delaware, and Congress is still examining the Biden family’s foreign business dealings. Rep. James Comer (R-KY) has said that he has growing evidence showing the Biden family received over $20 million from foreign nationals.
Hunter’s former business associate Devon Archer plans to speak to the House Oversight Committee about what he knows about the Biden family’s business dealings. The $20,000 monthly child support payments are just the beginning of Hunter’s troubles.
