I am an upper middle class payor of alimony. I currently pay alimony at a fixed percent of my income and do not pay child support for my children. At the time of our divorce several years ago this made sense and yielded better tax treatment of the support without 'costing' me any more. Now a few years later we have new child support guidelines which would yield a different result, resulting in a lower (net after taxes) support payment compared to current alimony payments.
My question is are there any statutes or precedents that, should I ask a judge to enter a child support order rather than alimony, would help to achieve this? Thank you
