Jodie Sweetin Fights Ex-Husband's Request for More Child Support, Says She Makes $40K a Month

The Fuller House actress filed an income and expense declaration after her ex petitioned a judge to force her to pay more money for childcare

Jodie Sweetin has taken the next step in her ongoing child support battle against ex-husband Morty Coyle.

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the Fuller House actress filed an income and expense declaration Nov. 8 to the Superior Court of Los Angeles after Coyle petitioned a judge to force Sweetin to pay more money for childcare.

Sweetin and Coyle — who share 7-year-old daughter Beatrix — split in 2013 after a year of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in August 2016. (The actress also shares 9-year-old daughter Zoie with ex-husband Cody Herpin.)

In the court documents, Sweetin, 35, detailed her finances to show earnings of a little over $40,000 per month — as opposed to the $700,000 a year that Coyle reportedly claimed his ex was making. (According to the documents, Sweetin’s adjusted gross income in 2016 was $437,349.)

The documents state that Sweetin averages a monthly income of $43,614, with $12,000 in wages and $31,614 in income for self-employment.

Sweetin listed her monthly expenses as totaling $15,262, leaving $28,352.

Sweetin also listed some of her assets, including $139,456.25 in a business account and $9,449 in other accounts.

The judge has yet to rule on Coyle’s plea for more child support. The Nov. 16 hearing was postponed, and a new one has been set for Dec. 15.
