After their divorce agreements are put into motion, many individuals may find that certain terms do not fit as well as they had hoped. As a result, California residents and other individuals may begin looking for ways to change their agreements. When it comes to child support, a significant change in circumstances could warrant modifications.
Recent reports indicated that "Fuller House" star Jodie Sweetin may be in the midst of a child support case as her ex-husband Morty Coyle is looking to change their agreement. Reports stated that both Sweetin and Coyle were granted joint legal and physical custody of their 6-year-old daughter. The report also stated that Sweetin was not ordered to pay child support as her monthly income at the time was $4,000.
Coyle believes that Sweetin's annual income is close to $600,000, stemming from her current series roles, income from her child-star days and a jewelry line. As Coyle's monthly income was reported as $2,000, he is hoping to gain child support from Sweetin. It was not specifically reported how much support he hopes to obtain.
Income changes can often spur individuals to pursue child support modifications. In many cases, parents may have lost income or faced financial issues that make it difficult for them to make payments, or -- as this case suggests -- a parent may have had a significant increase in income. Whatever the case may be, if California residents believe their life changes warrant a support modification, they may wish to discuss their desires with experienced family law attorneys.
