Hi & thanks for using our service. I'll do my best to give you a complete & accurate answer. Please ask me to clarify anything you don't understand.
Where was your lawyer on this one? It seems that the Court's intention was to have your soon to be ex-wife keep the child support in lieu of your PAYMENT of alimony, rather than in lieu of alimony.
You need your lawyer to confirm to you that is the case & the existing wording is ambiguous. Of course, if your soon to be ex agrees that she will report the child support as alimony, rather than exchange checks, everything should be fine.
She had better be careful as is her ex & father get wind of this he'll be after a modification of his child support, which will really get confusing.
