Actor Jeremy Renner is denying accusations by his ex-wife that he owes more than $48,000 in child support. Renner and his ex, who finalized their divorce in 2015, have a child support agreement in place, but his ex-wife is seeking additional support, including the payment of their child's monthly preschool tuition.
According to Renner's rep, the agreement specifies that Renner pay $13,000 a month for child support. The couple share custody of their 3-year-old daughter. Reportedly, Renner adjusts his work schedule to make sure to spend maximum time with his daughter. Court documents reveal the dispute over the amount of child support being paid and include a text from Renner to his ex-wife questioning why she wants more child support and why she cannot take care of their daughter with more than $300,000 a year.
Renner's ex-wife is seeking payment of the child support she believes he owes her, as well as the $1,600 monthly preschool tuition, which Renner's rep says is not part of their support agreement. Renner's rep accuses his ex of trying to demean him and of attempting to get more money from the actor.
Divorces are usually highly emotional periods and custody and child support disputes can make it even more complicated. A person who needs to change the terms of an order has to go back to court and seek a modification of it. This can be supported by a change in financial circumstances, and an attorney can be of assistance in gathering evidence that will demonstrate that to the court's satisfaction.
