Reality star's ex wants new child support order

Reality television stars Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray are reportedly engaged and living together in California. The two reality stars may have found love on the show "Bachelor in Paradise", but Stanton's ex and the father of her two daughters, Nick Buonfiglio, does not like how the show turned out. According to Buonfiglio, media attention from the show has caused harm to his daughters.

Buonfiglio is not just unhappy with his ex's reality television work and the negative effect that he believes it has had on his daughters. He is also displeased with the $2,000 per month child support that he pays to Stanton based on her past monthly income and the initial child custody arrangement that they had agreed to. Although Stanton made just $100 a month when the child support order was first calculated, she now makes around $25,000 a month.

Stanton and Buonfiglio's current child custody agreement calls for Stanton to have the children 65 percent of the time. However, Buonfiglio has publicly complained about having to make child support payments to Stanton while she is on the set of her reality show for the majority of the month and he is watching the kids. Stanton and Buonfiglio are expected to attend mediation on Sept. 30. If a new child custody and child support order cannot be negotiated in mediation, the parents will go to court on Oct. 13.

Child support and child custody orders may need to be modified when there are significant changes in one or both of the parent's circumstances. A judge may agree to recalculate child support payments if a parent loses a job, starts earning more income, gets remarried or incurs additional monthly expenses. Those who are seeking such a modification may want to have legal assistance throughout the process.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)


    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
