Jon Cryer to pay wife $8K/month for child support

Jon Cryer has been ordered to pay $8,000 a month in child support payments to his ex-wife, Sarah Trigger Cryer, even though he now has primary custody of the child.

Both Jon and Sarah remarried and Sarah had a child with her second husband. She initially had primary custody of her and Cryer's child and after her second divorce, of her younger child as well.

After her youngest child was injured at home, both children were given primary custody to their fathers. Originally, Cryer was ordered to pay $10,000 a month and now it has been lowered to $8,000. Jon found the that this situation was not fair, but the court said that it was best for the child.
