Her legal team has filed papers asking a judge to dismiss Jason’s request, so all matters concerning the children can be handled in Los Angeles instead.
The 47-year-old actor has been told by Olivia that he doesn’t want to receive child support and is willing to pay her a “reasonable amount” to be determined by the two or a judge.
The 38-year-old actress and director recently expressed frustration that people thought she had “abandoned” her children because she was busy with work after splitting from Jason in 2020.

Olivia claimed the public didn’t see her with her children because she “wouldn’t let them be photographed.”
