[quote]Right now it is a temp. My lawyer says no, it is not included in the ex's income, only for fed tax purposes. But I can find nothing which states that it should not be. [/quote]
I looked up the guidelines , alimony is calculated after CS is figured ( never saw that one before ) so it would not be included in the calculations . Your attorney is correct . The main problem with temp. support orders is that judges tend to make them much greater than what would be ordered permanently due not being familiar with all the financial information .
Careful. We don't want to learn from this.
