Thanks for your question. If you are paying here you tell the parent to quit paying you for awhile. I wouldn't say that this should be counted here. The best thing for you to do here is to stop the payments so you won't be listing it on your income here.
It is a gift and could be discontinued. Obviously the ex may see if differently. But since this is subject to being discontinued and you may want to do this for the pendency of the divorce I would not list it or count it.
I would argue that it is not regular income and shouldn't be counted on. If it discontinued at the time of the hearing it would not and should not be listed here in my mind. If anybody asks it is because it has been discontinued, right..You need to get your story planned out here..
