My husband and I are divorcing. We have a 17 year old son…

Customer Question
My husband and I are...
My husband and I are divorcing. We have a 17 year old son with autism. We have agreed to the following and need to know how to word this in the divorce:
Respondent, ***** *****son, will pay $13,000.00 worth of in-kind support payments for the care of ***** *****son each calendar year. They will include, but are not limited to: ***** Social Therapy Prescriptions and Supplements Entertainment costs The specifics of these payments will be determined each month by the petitioner and respondent. These payments will end when ***** *****son is able to provide a living for himself, otherwise they will remain in effect until the death of the respondent or ***** *****son.
In the event that ***** *****son is able to provide a living for himself prior to December 31, 2023, the amount of these payments will be paid to the petitioner, Tammy Hanson, as Alimony, along with the other ordered amount of $13,000.00 per year, for a total of $26,000.00 per year, which all shall end December 31, 2023.
Tammy Hanson will apply for a limited conservatorship for the disable child ***** *****son (Autism), and manage his care, basically having physical and legal custody of him until he is able to care for himself, regardless of his age. Visitation with the respondent, ***** *****son will continue as outlined elsewhere.
Petitioner, Tammy Hanson, and respondent, ***** *****son, both agree to continued shared financial responsibility for child, ***** *****son, until such time that he is able to provide a living for himself. Both understand that they may not ever happen. Support will continue as outlined in this document.
Thank you for your help.
