In a surprising turn of events, Hunter Biden has reached a settlement in his child support case in Arkansas with Lunden Alexis Roberts, the mother of one of his children. The settlement, announced in a court filing, puts an end to a lengthy paternity dispute over their 4-year-old daughter. However, it’s worth noting that both President Biden and the first lady have chosen not to acknowledge the child as their seventh grandchild.
Here are the key details of the settlement:
Artwork in Lieu of Financial Support
As part of the agreement, court records reveal that Hunter Biden will give his daughter some of his paintings. The artwork, which Hunter took up as part of his recovery from addiction, will be provided to the child, who can choose to sell them or keep them for herself. The court documents specify that the paintings should vary in size, with a minimum size of 24×24.
Financial Payments and College Education Fund
The court document redacts the exact amount Hunter Biden will pay to Roberts, but it stipulates that monthly payments will begin on July 1, 2023, and continue until the child reaches 18 years of age, gets married, or passes away. Furthermore, within the next five years, Biden and Roberts will discuss the possibility of creating a college education fund for their daughter.

Last Name Controversy
Interestingly, Roberts had initially filed a counterclaim to change the child’s last name to “Biden.” However, the court records now indicate that she has withdrawn that request.
This settlement marks the conclusion of a complex and high-profile case that started with a paternity suit in 2019. The court determined through a DNA test that Hunter Biden is the biological father of the child. While the financial aspects of the settlement remain undisclosed, it seems that Hunter Biden’s paintings will play a role in providing support for his daughter.
Hunter Biden’s personal life has often made headlines, with his previous marriage, substance abuse struggles, and involvement with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company. The settlement brings some resolution to the child support case, although the child will not carry the Biden last name.
