Spousal support/alimony


#1

I am having to file my own emergency spousal support/alimony order-how do I word it so it is not considered taxible income?
Also, can I add into this document that I get the title to my car, or does that have to go on the property settlement?
And, How can I force him to keep life insurance until the alimony is all paid?

Alimony is normally considered taxable income to the payee, and the court takes that factor into account when determining the amount to award.
The car is part of property distribution and you will also need to file claim for Equitable Distribution in order for the court to divide all assets.
You may ask the court to have your spouse maintain a life insurance policy to cover his alimony obligation.
