Hello

The spousal support is taxable to the ex spouse that receives it. The ex spouse that pays gets to deduct that from their income.

You ask does it "have to go to the nursing" and that is not clear. Please explain what you mean by that.

Paying one's share of property taxes and insurance would depend on who received the home in the divorce.

If you can let me know about those 2 items we can continue.
