I am hoping that the Final Judgment and Decree of Divorce a Georgia judge signed has more specifics than you listed. Child support is not deductible by the payor or income to the payee. The cost of the divorce is not likely deductible under any scenario. You could ask a tax advisor. If you are also asking about modification, modification can be agreed by your former spouse and you but it isn't effective unless approved by a judge (which means filing an action to modify). Consider booking a phone Session with me, the 99 Dollar Lawyer.
