Court Orders Jodie Sweetin Of 'Fuller House' To Pay Ex-Husband $2,800 Per Month For Child Support


Fuller House star Jodie Sweetin has been ordered to pay approximately $3,000 in monthly child support payments to ex-husband Morty Coyle, according to court documents.

Coyle and Sweetin tied the knot in 2012 and separated a year later but their divorce took three years to finalize.

The couple welcomed their daughter, Beatrice, in 2010 and currently share joint custody of the 7-year-old. The actress also shares a 9-year-old daughter Zoie with her first husband, Cody Herpin.

Sweetin, who played the role of Stephanie Tanner on Full House, earned a big break when Netflix's reboot of the show became a huge success. Sweetin reprises her role in the revival. The second half of Season 3 is set to arrive on Netflix this Friday, Dec. 22.

Coyle's Child Support Request Granted

In January, Coyle filed a formal request for child support in a Los Angeles court and his request was granted on Dec. 15.

According to the court documents, the judge ordered Sweetin to cough up $2,800 per month in child support to Coyle hence. In addition, Jodie was also ordered to make previous payments through Sep. 1, 2017, which will have to be paid in two installments next year on Feb. 1 and March. 1.

Sweetin's Pay Raise

Coyle had argued that the 35-year-old actress was raking in at least $600,000 a year largely in part to the new Netflix series. This is significantly higher than her earnings at the time of their divorce in 2016.

When Sweetin and Coyle's divorce was finalized in 2016, the Dancing With the Stars alum disclosed that she was earning only $4,000 a month and $48,000 annually, so the judge told her she did not have to pay child support at the time.

Sweetin's Income and Expense Declaration

In November, Sweetin filed an income and expense declaration to the Superior Court of Los Angeles after Coyle filed a petition in court requesting more money for child support.

The declaration revealed the actress' earnings to be slightly higher than $40,000 a month as opposed to the $600,000 a year that Coyle reportedly claimed she was hauling in.

The document showed Sweetin's adjusted gross income in 2016 as $437,349 and her monthly income averaged at $43,614 including $12,000 in wages and $31,614 in income from self-employment.

The actress also showed $15,262 as her expenses every month, which leaves her with $28,352 in net income. In addition, Sweetin also disclosed some of her other assets including $139,456.25 in a business account and $9,449 lying in other bank accounts.
