AceShowbiz - Actor Ian Ziering is urging his estranged wife Erin to find a job because he is only willing to pay spousal support for a limited time.
The "Sharknado" star announced his separation from Erin in October after nine-and-a-half years of marriage, and she filed for divorce in early November.
In her petition, she asked to be granted spousal support - a request Ziering has no problem with, as long as the figure is "reasonable" and only for "a limited period of time".
According to documents obtained by TMZ, the 55-year-old is also seeking "an order that (Erin) become self-supporting".
Meanwhile, he wants the judge overseeing their case to hand him joint legal and physical custody of their two young daughters, eight-year-old Mia and Penna, six, challenging Erin's initial demand for sole physical custody.
The exes, who wed in May, 2010, also disagree on their date of separation - Erin listed 31 October, while Ziering claims they actually called it quits on 14 October.
The marriage was Ziering's second - he was previously wed to former Playboy model Nikki Schieler from 1997 until 2002.
