In order to get permanent custody of their son Charlie Austin, Jon is reportedly trying to take away any sort of financial support given to his ex-wife so that she will be unable to pay her bills and eventually lose her home.
A source says:
“Sarah is already up to her eyeballs in debt and is terrified that she is going to end up homeless. She is fully aware that it will be very difficult to win custody of her son back if she is homeless, something that I’m sure that Jon is more than aware of too. The crazy thing is that it is actually costing him more to litigate against her and the child support than it would cost him just to make the payments! You’re looking at a guy that makes more than half a million dollars a month, and he’s complaining about paying the mother of his child $8,000.”
Vicky Greene, the attorney of his wife Sarah Trigger is also saying Jon is taking child support away so that he would like to see her "homeless" and that he had "filed a request in November to reduce Sarah Trigger’s child support from $10,000 to $0 but the request was denied by the judge and instead was reduced to $8,000." She goes on to say that, "The court determined that it was not in their son, Charlie’s best interest to take his mother’s child support down to $0. He is doing this to the mother of his child.”
Meanwhile, in a Los Angeles court last week, Trigger filed court documents, giving a sworn statement stating responsibility for child endangerment charges involving her other son, Alex, with her current husband. She has also admitted to leaving Charlie at home alone and has agreed that she will not do it again. In her documents, she wrote:
"I have worked very hard to attend therapeutic requirements and finally visitation has been liberalized to include home visits for both of my children, but as it relates to this proceeding, with Charlie. I have done everything I am required to do and beyond, because nothing is more important to me than having both of my children returned to me for purposes of within proceeding, having Charlie come home…I am in financial ruins because of all the fees I have incurred and cannot afford to pay. I am up to my ears in debt. One of the problems I have encountered, aside from the negative publicity and Jon's stature in the business (I also have been told he is spreading negative rumors about me), is that no one is willing to push my name because I cannot actually commit to work due to my DCFS visitation and therapeutic schedule…I will be forced out into the street."
Cryer has requested a list of objections to her statements and is wanting them off the record. A hearing for those objections will be held on Monday
So much drama!! We just hope that these two get their act together for the sake of the children involved!
