Jon Cryer's ex-wife Sarah Trigger has filed a petition asking for a bump in the amount of child support she receives from the Two and a Half Men star.

Trigger, who shares 13-year-old son Charlie with the actor, is asking the court to modify their current spousal support agreement, which has Trigger receiving $8,000 from Cryer per month.

So just how much more does Trigger want from her former hubby? Almost $89,000 a month ($88,969 to be exact)!

Claiming that the astronomical pay raise is for "the benefit of our minor child," Trigger notes in the legal docs, "Currently, I am unemployed. Petitioner is highly successful actor who I believe earns approximately $2,000,000 per month."

"Currently, Charlie experiences two different lifestyles depending on which parent he is with," Trigger, who shares custody with Cryer 50-50, says. "Fifty percent of the time Charlie is able to compete with his peers on a level playing field and the other fifty percent of the time Charlie is not able to compete on a level playing field."

Trigger goes on to note that she doesn't have the money to pay for lavish parties, summer camps, extracurricular activities or global vacations, things that classmates from Charlie's posh and expensive school enjoy on a regular basis (she even name drops a lavish Bar Mitzvah they went to recently!).

Trigger explains that Charlie is noticing the disparity in the lifestyle he has with her and the ones his friends are privileged to.

In addition to the $89,000 per month, Trigger is also asking Cryer to pay for her attorney's fees. Cryer and Trigger married back in 1999 and divorced in 2004.
