Amber Heard has filed a court order to get Johnny Depp to pay the $6.8 million he owes her for a divorce settlement.

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Heard filed a Request for Order with the Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday to ensure that Depp pays the actress the remaining portion of the $7 million divorce settlement. Heard claims Depp made the first payment of $200,000 directly to the charities instead of to her. She is also requesting legal fees from Depp in the amount of $35,435.

"Instead, when Johnny learned that I planned to donate my entire marital settlement to charities, Johnny purported to satisfy his obligation to pay me by supposedly paying the charities I selected instead of me," she wrote in legal documents obtained by E! News..

Heard continues, "He also claimed that I violated the confidentiality provisions of the [Deal Point Memorandum] by announcing that I was donating my settlement to charities. In fact, I made those donations in good faith and I was responding to the leaks by Johnny's agents bragging that I had settled for substantially less than a reported, earlier offered sum and attempting to label me a gold digger."

Heard had filed for divorce in May, with the domestic abuse allegations revealed immediately after. She accused Depp of being physically and verbally abusive.
