It comes after reports surfaced last summer detailing the terms of the pair’s divorce in which the “Smallville” star was ordered to pay $25,000 a month, after a judge initially ordered him to pay $18,911 back in 2016 before the divorce settlement finalized in August 2019, per Fox News.

Elvira reportedly believes John should have no problem paying her as she estimates his monthly income at $172,777.

The outlet noted that Castle doesn’t expect her ex to pay it all in one lump sum and would just like be given portions of the Schneider’s payroll from “30 different studios and production companies that pay him,” according to TMZ.

As previously reported, Elvira filed for divorce from the TV star back in December 2014. He later spent three days behind bars for failing to pay temporary spousal support.

Schneider has since got re-married to his girlfriend Alicia Allain at a ceremony with friends.
