Teresa Giudice has repaid the federal government $200,000 in restitution fees linked to their fraud conviction — less than half of the $414,588 the court ordered her and her husband Joe to pay — the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star submit the payment two weeks ago, around the time she was sentenced to 15 months in custody, NorthJersey.com reported.

While the convicted fraud perpetrators were ordered to have the money prior to the sentencing hearing, a lawyer for the cash-strapped Giudices said they were still waiting for checks to clear down to the day of sentencing, which annoyed presiding Judge Esther Salas.

They eventually procured the cash, according to their lawyer, via a combination of a $50,000 loan from a family friend, and a $150,000 payment the Bravo star got as an advance contract.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Joe will be the only parent at home to care for their four daughters — Gia, 13, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5 — when Teresa enters prison Jan. 5. When she is released, he will enter custody for a total of 41 months, and possibly deported to his native Italy thereafter.
