Michael Lohan and his ex-wife Dina have been fighting over money for their four children - the Mean Girls actress and her three younger siblings, Michael, Ali and Dakota - ever since their divorce in 2007.

He was stripped of his passport and driving licence by a judge in April (15) after reportedly racking up child support debts of $16,000 (£10,000).

According to TMZ.com, Michael has now sent a $9,500 (£6,000) cheque to the New York State Child Support Processing Center and, as a result, a judge has returned his identification documents.

Lohan still owes his ex-wife $6,000 (£3,750), but he has been allowed to pay it off in $1,500 (£900) monthly installments.
