Jodie Sweetin facing child support claim from ex-husband

Divorce cases that involve children are often complicated, even after a settlement has been finalized. If there are significant changes in circumstances, child support orders issued at the time of the divorce may be ill-suited to the new conditions under which an individual may be living. As a result, some parties may wish to seek changes to their support agreements. 

New York readers may be interested in a child support conflict currently involving former child star Jodie Sweetin. Sweetin and ex-husband Morty Coyle divorced last year. At the time, it was reported that Sweetin made $4,000 a month. As a result, she was not ordered to pay child support to Coyle for their 6-year-old daughter.

Now, Coyle is seeking child support as he claims Sweetin is making approximately $600,000 a year from her role on "Fuller House" and other projects. He also asserted that he makes only $2,000 per month. It was not disclosed exactly how much support he is hoping to gain, but it was noted that he is also pursuing compensation for attorney fees and a forensic accountant to track Sweetin's income.

When the income of one or both parents sees a considerable change, this change could be cause for modifications of a child support agreement. Therefore, if New York residents believe that their state of affairs has changed significantly enough, they may wish to determine whether seeking a support modification could suit their circumstances. Speaking with experienced attorneys could allow individuals to have their questions answered and gain help in determining their best options for moving forward.
