Court documents state that the former couple cannot decide what to do with their eight pets and how to handle their money, reports aceshowbiz.com.
According to the documents, Moore apparently earns only less than a quarter of Adams' monthly earning, which is USD 151,000.
Moore shared in the papers that Adams paid half of their mortgage, property taxes and insurance on their home here, but her earnings cannot cover all the expenses.
"I feel as if I have no alternative," Moore wrote in her petition.
She also requested help in taking care of the couple's dogs and cats. She claimed Adams offered to take two of the cats but did not.
"Although I love our pets, it is overwhelming for me to take care of eight of them all of the time," Moore wrote.
She now wants Adams to pay her $37,000 per month and take four of their pets until they reach an agreement on divorce terms.
"Without Ryan's help caring for the house and our pets, I have not been able to work as much as I would like," she wrote.
Moore and Adams announced their divorce after six years of marriage in January.
"It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways," representatives of the stars said in a statement at that time.
She filed for a divorce from him here, while he was in New York, asking for spousal support, reports aceshowbiz.com.
