Maintenance is for the spouse, and child support is for the children. Each one has tax ramifications, and you, your attorney, and a CPA (such as me) need to sit and figure out what the best package is for you. I've had over twenty years of experience in these settlement agreements, working out the best packages for my clients' situations.
