The money is a gift---not income---the court will not hold that it is income for child support or alimony
purposes. You already paid taxes on it and no one has to pay more taxes on the gift----neither you or him.
Technically you have to file a gift tax form with your tax return if you give one person more than $13,000 per year---but you have a lifetime exemption
of over $5,000,000 to give away before you have to pay any gift tax.
