She will not return for another season of The Real Housewives of New York, so Jules Wainstein needs to be smart about her financial future.

To do this, Jules is getting what she needs from her divorce from husband, Michael, which means asking for $25,000 per month in spousal and child support, according to E! News.

Since making the announcement back in June, Jules has been embroiled in a battle with Michael, who allegedly cheated on her with their friend.  

E! was in the courtroom during a September 8th hearing, in which it was decided that Michael "will have access to the office on the second floor" of the former couple's three-level apartment.

Jules and their two children - Jagger and Rio - will stay on the third and fourth floors.

On this past season on RHONY, Jules explained that her family lived in the same building where Michael worked, making it convenient for him to shuttle between the office and his home.

That creates a bit of a mess, since Jules has called the cops on Michael a few times this past summer after very heated arguments, and recently obtained a temporary restraining order against him.

The judge presiding over the case removed the restraining order, advising both parties to keep a "respectful distance" from one another "especially for the children's sake which needs to be the primary concern."

As far as finances are concerned, Jules requested $16,000 per month in spousal support, as well as $9,000 per month in "tax-free" child support, bringing the grand totally to $25K per month.

Michael's attorney contested the amount, claiming that his client's business has suffered as a result of the negative publicity he's received, and he simply doesn't have the funds to meet Jules' request.

While the judge reviews Michael's net worth and deliberates, he determined that Jules will get $10,000 a month.

Back in June, Jules addressed her divorce on her Bravo blog, and told her fans that this bump in the road will only make her stronger, smarter and happier.

"I've come a long way since my life began to unravel this past winter, and my kids and I will be just fine -- better than fine," she wrote.

"Truth is that it's too easy to get caught up in your own reality, especially when you are blindsided and betrayed by someone who is supposed to be a partner and friend.

"I'm trusting and open, but I'm also strong and practical. This isn't the end of the world, it's just a big bump in the road, but I'll get over it and I'll be stronger for it.

"I've got my kids, my family, my friends, my business, Modern Alkeme, and while my heart might be broken, it's still good as gold.

"There are bigger issues in the world that need tackling, and there are bigger realities that need to be addressed. My reality is that my kids and I are healthy and happy."

If the allegations against Michael are true, then good for Jules for going after her piece of the pie.
