“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gina Kirschenheiter is set to face off with her ex-husband Matt, to fight over child support and custody.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Gina and Matt Kirschenheiter have set a court date of January 15, 2020. They will battle it out over the remaining issues in their divorce. Matt is attempting to lower his child support payments to Gina.
Matt claims he is currently unemployed and has no income. He believe Gina should pay support because she is currently the moneymaker. He was pulling in $43,000 a month until being let go following his domestic violence arrest. He was recently charged with a felony over the incident. He has plead not guilty to the charge.
Last year, Gina filed for divorce from Matt following nearly eight years of marriage. She cited irreconcilable differences for the split.
In her petition, she listed the date of marriage as May 15, 2010, and the separation date as March 3, 2018. The two share three minor children and she asked for joint legal and primary physical custody.
Matthew filed court docs months later demanding the court not grant his estranged wife primary custody and checked the box seeking joint custody.
Recently, a judge ordered Matt to pay Gina $10,000 a month in support. Per the deal, Gina has primary custody of the kids and they share legal custody.
They agreed to take one counseling co-parenting class per month together and neither will disparage the other in front of their kids or on “RHOC.”
Both agreed to not introduce another significant other unless it’s serious or talking to the other first.
He had agreed to pay $4,500 per month in child support along with $5,127 a month in spousal support, for a grand total of $9,627. The amount was based on his base salary and gross commissions of $421,000 a year.
Gina will keep all her jewelry, clothes, and keeps the Chrysler Town and Country. Matt will keep his personal belongings plus the 2015 Lexus.
Matt rushed to court days later demanding the support be slashed. The case is ongoing.
