Child support battle of Anne Heche and James Tupper
Recently, the American actress is wanting to have a look at her ex James Tupper’s full financial details. The former pair is going with the child support battle for their 10-years-old son.
On Thursday, 27 while discussing the matter in the courthouse, the actress requested to get the report of Tupper’s finances and earnings from 2018 and 2019.
The documents should include his tax information and assets. Furthermore, the actress also asked to hand over her acting contract with Tupper.
This will give the actual report of how much he earned and his payment for his roles in Big Little Lies and A Million Little Things. However, during the court date on Thursday, neither of the exes was present in the courtroom.
Meanwhile, her attorney Teresa Lin mentioned that the actor has earned more than the actress as both of the shows went on the success list. At the time, the actress’s attorney stated:
“What I would like and what we request, is Mr. Tupper actually provide verified response that’s co-compliant, meaning does he have these documents, and if so, can he produce them. If not, where can I get them,”
She also added they want fairness in terms of representation. The attorney also added this is a paternity action which doesn’t mean that Ms. Heche is only entitled to see the tax returns when his 2019 doesn’t exist.
James Tupper’s attorney has different points
While Anna and her attorney have asked to see the actor’s documents. But Tupper’s attorney Laura Wasser has different points to say. The legal representative of James, Laura mentioned Anna earned more than her client did last year.
Furthermore, the attorney mentioned the documents of Returns To Paradise will give more in-depth than Tupper’s documents.
Wasser told Judge Lynne Healey Scaduito on Thursday:
“I think if she is not seeing numbers that she likes, she asks for additional information. Credit card statement for Mr. Tupper in 2019 is not going to help Ms. Heche either reduce her income or increase his,”
Meanwhile, the judge made a statement that both Heche and Tupper should show the financial documents. She will send both parties her final decision before the next hearing in April 2020.
The split between Anne and James
The couple who welcomed their son together in 2009 parted their ways after 10 years. They met when they co-starred in the ABC series Men In Trees back in 2006 for the first time.
At the time, she was still married to her former husband Coleman. Shortly after their divorce, she started dating James.
Though they were together for more than a decade, they never got married. Anna and James have been on several projects together.
