(1) This appears to be a reasonable proposal since the assets are divided equally, custody is divided equally, and spousal support is likely an amount that ensures the dependent spouse maintains his/her standard of living.
(2) Alimony is the spousal support in 1©. Alimony can be paid whether or not there is marital misconduct during a marriage.
(3) Child support may still need to be paid. Spousal support received by the dependent spouse is not considered as income for child support purposes when it is paid by the supporting spouse who is also a parent to the children involved in a child support case.
