Lawyers for Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, went before a judge last week and asked Warner Bros., the company that produces "Two and a Half Men," to withhold $55,000 from the check it sends to the actor each month to satisfy his child support obligations.

On Friday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Hank Goldberg approved the request to garnish his wages.

The money, which was part of the couple's divorce settlement (they officially split on May 2), is intended to support their twin sons, Max and Bob.

According to TMZ, which cites sources close to Mueller, Sheen is not behind on his payments, however Mueller sought the garnishment in case the actor runs low on cash.
