Amanda Stanton loses child support battle, ex-husband Nick Buonfiglio's payments drastically slashed

Amanda Stanton has reportedly lost her child support battle with ex-husband Nick Buonfiglio.
Buonfiglio recently took Stanton back to family court in attempt to lower his child support payments after her income drastically increased thanks to appearances on The Bachelor's 20th season andBachelor in Paradise's third season.
And lucky for Buonfiglio, he got his way. The father of four-year-old Kinsley and two-year-old Charlie had been writing monthly checks for $2,000, and now, he will only owe $530 a month, TMZ reported.
Buonfiglio's payments were therefore slashed by almost 75%.
In court documents previously obtained by the website, Stanton -- who has been living with her new fiance Josh Murray for months now -- revealed their joint household income is currently over $23,000 per month.
Stanton is reportedly making more than $13,000 a month thanks to sponsored social-media posts and her fashion blog, while Murray is earning $10,000 a month.
The pair went public with their engagement once Bachelor in Paradise's finale aired September 6 on TV, and Murray moved into Stanton's home shortly afterwards.
Buonfiglio told RadarOnline back in September he thought his child support payments were unfair considering he took on a lot of responsibility with the girls while Stanton was away filming her two shows and he's having trouble affording the cost when Stanton is doing just fine financially.
Stanton and Buonfiglio finalized their divorce in June 2015.
