Lunden Roberts, the mother of a child with first son Hunter Biden, wants him put in jail over disobeying court orders in a child support case.
Lawyers for Roberts filed the motion Thursday in the Arkansas court over the legal battle.

"She seeks civil contempt of incarceration until such time as the defendant fully answers discovery and to be paid for her attorney's fees and costs, which are paid from her child support payments and thereby a loss to the child in this case," Roberts's lawyers said in the court filing.
"Specifically, the plaintiff seeks $20,000 to compensate for the discovery goose chases, hounding of the defendant, and need to constantly seek the court's intervention," the filing continued.

"[P]laying games with discovery is a hallmark Biden litigation tactic," Roberts' lawyers wrote.
"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," the lawyers added.
Hunter has claimed that he is not a privileged member of the president's family. However, earlier this year he traveled to Ireland on Air Force One with his father, staying at the same hotel as his father President Joe Biden.
Hunter has so far failed to provide the details related to the child custody case. The blocked information has delayed the case, with lawyers now seeking jail time for the first son in response.
The case is among multiple investigations related to Hunter. He is also the focus of an investigation by the GOP-led House Oversight Committee.
The challenge by Roberts is a bold one, and may finally force Hunter to turn over financial details that could be important for his custody battle and other investigations.
