Jodie Sweetin to pay $2,800 in child support for daughter

Entertainers like Jodie Sweetin, the star of "Fuller House", might appear to viewers in Georgia to lead exciting lives, but they also have to follow court orders. A court has decided that Sweetin needs to pay her ex-husband $2,800 every month to support their 7-year-old daughter.

The court order states that the payments will continue until the girl attains age 18, dies, marries or is emancipated. Her father is to receive two payments per month with $1,400 due from Sweetin on the first of every month with another $1,400 to follow by the 15th of every month.

Sweetin's marriage to the father began in March 2012. Trouble became apparent in June 2013 when she prepared paperwork for a legal separation. They completed their divorce in August 2016. Now that the child support amount has been determined, Sweetin also needs to catch up on amounts owed back to Sept. 1. She can pay her ex-husband the retroactive amounts in two installment payments with the final one due by March 1, 2018.

State child support guidelines are based in large part on the financial resources of the parents, but people can negotiate terms privately as well. An attorney could provide guidance to a person involved in discussions about child support. Whether parents were ever married or not, an attorney could help someone pursue a child support agreement or unpaid support by presenting the person's needs in court. This service could help a person understand rights and disclose financial information accurately to a court. If the other parent challenges a request, an attorney could provide evidence to illustrate the financial needs of the children.
