Mildred Baena Could Get More Money In Child Support Than Arnold Schwarzenegger's Wife, Maria Shriver, Says Lawyer!

Because Maria Shriver has so many assets outside of her marriage, a Beverly Hills family law attorney tells he expects she’ll get less in child support than his mistress and former housekeeper, Mildred Baena!

We’re still reeling from the news that Arnold Schwarzenegger has an illegitimate child with his former housekeeper, Mildred “Patty Baena, but what’s even more shocking is that she’s likely to get more in child support than his own wife, Maria Shriver.

“Child support is not supposed to be a back door way to get spousal support, but it definitely would change Patty’s lifestyle,” Beverly Hills-based attorney David Friedman of Friedman & Freidman Lawyers tells

“The money would be paid to the mother. It’s trusted she’d be using the amount for the child. The child is supposed to share in the lifestyle of the high earner parent, so she would have an upgrade and more income.”

Because Arnold’s wife has her own assets, he most likely won’t owe her as much money in child support. However, it’s almost impossible to estimate for just how much Patty is eligible.

If Patty files for child support, they will have to hire a forensic accountant to figure out what Arnold’s monthly cash flow is, because of all his investments and real estate,” he says.

“Then, of course, he would have his team of attorneys and accountants and they would come up with a number, which would probably be less than what she came up with.”

Unfortunately, because this is a paternity case (versus a divorce), outside eyes will never see the file. Any negotiations — IF they even happen — will be in a sealed file.

We have to wonder if Patty will even seek support for her 14-year-old son with Arnold. After all, the former California governor has reportedly taken care of her and her family for years, perhaps their current agreement is enough for her.

When I found out my husband of 26 has a married girlfriend, I filed for divorce and sued her and hom for using marital money[my half] for trips, gifts, etc. My lawyers told the Judge that if the rat bought her a cup pf copy,half of the price was my money.
I got a Judgment on both,my dignity and the lack of respect to me and our children needed this action. Maria has the power to clean the floor with the Austrian American looser and sue the maid.

This lawyer is clearly on “Team Arnold and maid!”. The maid wouldnt file for child support as she already receives child support from him, which I can bet its already a hefty amount. I’m sure he has her back covered pretty well. But its not like she deserves a mansion in the Hollywood Hills, hummers and expensive trips to Europe every year. Get real

Both Baena and Schwarzennegger are disgusting. My heart goes to Maria and the kids.

Patty’s son definitely deserves to have the same access to education that his brothers and sisters have. I wonder if Arnold has intimidated Patty into silence by abusing his power as Governor to keep her quiet.

Arnold needs to be investigated.

Are you honestly trying to make this woman a victim? To commit adultery with someone is wrong. To not understand that it’s wrong is disgusting. And honestly when people commit adultery with someone who’s wealthy or well known there are generally alterior motives.
