In May, Baumgartner filed for divorce from Costner after 18 years of marriage. Initially, a judge ruled in July that Costner should pay her over $129,000 in monthly child support.
However, in a briefing before the recent court hearing, Baumgartner requested an increase to $175,057 per month, according to court documents.
After the two-day court hearing, the judge ordered Costner to pay Christine $63,209 per month in child support. This amount represents a significant reduction from the initial ruling of over $129,000.
Costner expressed his concerns in court about paying child support that exceeds the needs of his children and estranged wife.
