Plenty of Ohio residents recognize the face and name of Halle Berry. The actress has enjoyed a great deal of career success in movies spanning a wide range of genres. Berry has made recent headlines not for a new artistic endeavors, however, but for a recent court filing. The actress is asking a family court to reduce the monthly child support payments that she is ordered to make to her former boyfriend.
Berry and her ex, a former model, have a six-year-old child together. After a lengthy and contentious child custody battle, the pair settled into a shared custody schedule, allowing both to share parenting time and responsibilities. Berry currently pays the father of her child monthly child support of $16,000, even though the child does not primarily reside with her father.
