The December 20, 2021 court filings say modifications were made after Williams reported “a significant change of income.” The documents were filed 6 months after his departure from the ABC drama, Grey’s Anatomy.

The estranged couple married in September 2012 after dating for more than five years. In April 2017, Williams filed for divorce.

Between ongoing court appearances in regard to custody of their children, spousal and child support, this has been an ongoing battle.

They finalized their divorce in 2020.

In April 2021, the couple was ordered by a judge to attend a “High Conflict Parent” program.
