I recently divorce my husband. He is retired from the military. i was awarded a small portion of his pension. I don't fall in the 10/10 rule. Recently he told me saying he is rounding up on the monthly payments Bc he is going to use so he can use it as a tax deduction. He pays my portion after tax withdrawals. So he sends me a check every month. And I am getting other money from him. Nothing in the decree says these are Alamony. Your thoughts?
