Jasmine Guy Going After Ex For Child Support

(TMZ) "A Different World" star Jasmine Guy says her ex-husband totally dropped the ball on paying his child support for the last two years to the tune of nearly $40,000, this according to court docs.

Guy filed legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court recently, claiming Terrence Mitchell Duckett -- who she divorced in 2008 -- was ordered by a judge to pay $1,469/month in child support for the couple's daughter.

In the docs, Guy says Duckett hasn't paid a dime since May 2010 and now owes her a whopping $39,663 in back support.

Guy filed the docs because she wants a judge to hold her ex in contempt of court so that she can collect on the debt by garnishing his wages, going after his assets, or even having him thrown in jail.

A hearing on the matter was scheduled for last month, but was cancelled because Jasmine was unable to serve her ex with the papers.

Sources close to Jasmine tell TMZ the actress is still attempting to serve the papers, so the hearing can be rescheduled.

Her lawyer, Lisa West, tells TMZ, "Both parents have the financial responsibility of rearing a child. Jasmine has always met and will continue to meet her financial responsibility. She, however unfortunately, finds herself in the same position as are many single mothers in this country -- she must enforce her child's right to benefit from the financial assets of both parents." more on this story
