Actor Charlie Sheen seeks child support reduction

For divorced parents, child support is an essential part of effectively raising a child. Ideally, when it comes to child support, parents should easily settle on an agreement that is centered on the best interest of the child. However, this is usually not the case. Divorced parents in Missouri can often get entangled in child support disputes that unfortunately compromise the future of a child.

Apparently, Hollywood celebrities are not immune to such troubles. Actor Charlie Sheen and his former wife Denise Richards continue to butt heads about child support and other legal matters. Sheen reportedly paid only a little more than half of the $55,000 monthly child support he owes last January, and he has not made any payments for the succeeding months.

Sheen and Richards have two daughters, 10-year-old Sam and 8-year-old Lola. Sources claimed that the actor's lawyers formally notified his ex-wife and her own lawyers of their intention to head into mediation in an attempt to reduce the child support.

On top of that, Sheen reportedly wants Richards to find another place to live. The actress, together with their two children and her other 2-year-old daughter presently live in a residence that the actor owns. Sheen claimed that he asked them to move since he already has a buyer for the home. However, sources indicated that Sheen's fiancée, Brett Rossi, had a hand in his decision to ask Richards and her daughters to move out.

In child support disputes, children often get the raw end of the deal. Not only do they have to deal with parents who are at odds, for lower income parents the monthly expenses they badly need to their everyday expenses are at risk as well.
