Now, he claims his income has increased, he owns A $21 million in property and wants the judge to adjust his monthly dues.

"I have and continue to exercise approximately 50% physical custody of Thomas and Zoe. Additionally, my income has increased substantially since the last order. I stipulate that I am an extraordinarily high-income earner," Quaid says in the filing.

"Therefore, I request that the Court modify the current order for child support, including but not limited to the Ostler payment which is due on February 28, 2020, and November 1, 2020. I request that the Court determine what the present guideline child support would be, and then make a below-guideline child support order based on the amount to be determined by the Court."

The actor also addressed the changes in the time and money spent on the twins.

"Circumstances have changed since the May 3, 2018 order," he said." I have a timeshare of 50% physical custody of Thomas and Zoe, my earned income has increased significantly and I am paying for 100% of Thomas and Zoe's expenses for school, child care so I can work, extracurricular activities, travel and many other costs."
