Warnock’s ex-wife takes authorized motion over baby custody

Ndoye and her attorney didn’t return messages seeking comment, nor did she provide the documents to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

A March 2020 incident between Warnock and Ndoye while their divorce filing was pending became the subject of scrutiny during his last election campaign.

Ndoye told Atlanta police officers that he ran over her foot with his car during a heated argument outside her townhouse, and she described him as a “great actor” after he denied her claims.

Warnock wasn’t charged with a crime, and medical officials didn’t find visible signs of injury to the foot. Warnock told the AJC in March 2020 that Ndoye’s allegations “didn’t happen.”

The most recent filing involves a child custody arrangement finalized in April 2020, as he was waging a campaign for the US Senate. Though the details are private, these agreements often stipulate that one spouse cannot move children out of state.

In the court documents, she asked a judge to revisit the child support considerations because she plans to be a full-time student at Harvard University for two years.

She claimed a “substantial change of circumstances regarding the welfare of the children” after Warnock’s victory, and she alleged in the filing that her ex-husband hasn’t reimbursed her for some child care costs that she incurred during time he’s scheduled to be with the kids

The filing singled out certain weekdays when Warnock was set to have responsibility for the children under the agreement but now cannot because of his Senate duties.

“The fact that (Warnock) has failed to reimburse (Ndoye) has left (Ndoye) financially strapped, leaving the children in her care when she should be concentrating on work-related and school-related responsibilities,” the filing states.

Ndoye also claimed that when Warnock has reimbursed her, “it has often been accompanied with an extended questioning regarding the value of and need for the services provided.”

Several Republicans are competing in the May 24 primary to face Warnock in November. The best-known GOP candidate is Herschel Walker, a former football player with a history of violence against women and erratic behavior that has dogged his campaign.
