Well, this will likely make things interesting should this reality family head to court. A recent episode of Mama June: From Not to Hot reveals Sugar Bear is fighting for visitation rights to see his daughter Honey Boo Boo, which could have him stepping in front of a judge -- possibly coughing up child support. There's just one slight problem: Sugar Bear's new wife refuses to dip into their honeymoon fund, potentially leaving the reality dad scrambling for money if he can't get it elsewhere. 

  • During a recent episode, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson and his wife Jennifer Lamb met up with an attorney, who informed him of his uphill battle.

    "In the state of Georgia, if you've not been declared [Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson's] legal father, you have no rights to her," attorney Ashley Brodie tells Sugar Bear and Jennifer during the January 19 episode. "You have just as much rights to her as I do."

  • It has been months since Sugar Bear has seen Honey Boo Boo (during the time of filming), which fuels this dad to do what's necessary to fix the situation.

    "Whatever paperwork I got to file [for me] to see Alana, I'm gonna do it," Sugar Bear says during the clip. "All I want is my visitation to maintain a relationship."

  • It seems Jennifer is supportive of her man's endeavor.

    "I want Mike to be happy, and I think I would be a great stepmom for Alana," Lamb mentions in the episode. "So I'm all for getting visitation rights ... but it would be easier and cheaper if June would just let Mike see his daughter."

  • He just better not use any of the money they have set aside for their honeymoon to pay for child support, should he owe it.

    "Hold up a minute, we can't even finish saving up for our honeymoon," Lamb tells Sugar Bear in the clip after the two discover he could be on the hook for child support if a court deems him the legitimate dad. ".... We're not dipping into our honeymoon fund. Oh, I know we're not."

  • Here's crossing our fingers this family can sort out all of this drama.

    After all, we don't want any folks needing to dip into their honeymoon moneys to be able to see their kid (insert sarcasm).
