Greetings. Sure, without an agreement you can ask her to pay anything. I think it is a great idea that you are paying her child support pursuant to the guidelines, but I would decrease the remaining amounts, or only pay pursuant to a signed agreement, so that you can deduct the same as alimony. Alimony is only tax deductible if paid in accordance with an signed agreement or court order. Best of luck.
