'Fuller House' star must pay child support to ex-husband

58904961_S (1).jpgJodie Sweetin, one of the actors in "Fuller House," does not appear to have the fun family life that television viewers in Illinois have seen depicted on her television show. A judge has ruled that she must pay $2,800 every month to her ex-husband to support their child. Their daughter is currently 7 years old, and the court order requires payments to continue until the girl reaches age 18, becomes emancipated, marries or dies.

The payment schedule calls for her ex-husband to receive $1,400 by the first of every month and another $1,400 on the 15th of every month. The court also imposed an obligation that the actor send her ex-husband retroactive child support payments early next year.

The girl's parents married in March 2012, but trouble had hit the relationship by June 2013 when Sweetin pursued a legal separation. The divorce became official in August 2016. Rocky relationships appear to be the norm for the 35-year-old television actor. Sweetin had already gone through two previous marriages from 2002 to 2006 and 2007 and 2010.

Children of divorced or separated parents often rely on the financial support of both parents. When a person has trouble collecting child support or needs to modify the calculation of support due to financial changes in one or both parents' lives, an attorney could explain the process. To enforce an existing court order, an attorney could inform the court about the unpaid balance and seek to collect money through wage garnishment, liens, or the seizure of tax refunds.
