Your question is a technical one. If you divorce has not been finalized then more often than not this will be viewed as marital income and would be subject to splitting.

She gave me papers about a Temporary Order and a court date hearing. At this point, I'm unable to afford representation in my behalf. How do I respond to the papers handed to me? Do I go to the court hearing date? What is the procedure and process to that?
answered on Feb 20, 2023
Personally, no. Her handing you the paperwork does not constitute formal service of process. It’s a rare courtesy.
Take the papers she gave you to a competent attorney with family law experience in or near the county where the divorce proceedings are filed well before the date of the... Read more »

Any Oklahoma resident who meets the jurisdiction requirements can file their own divorce proceeding. With that said, the court does not provide forms to file for divorce, but you can file your...

if you are asking specifically regarding the IRS or State you can call, confirm your identity, and see who has an active Power of Attorney on your account. The representatives you speak to should be able to give guidance on how to revoke that power as well.

You haven't given me enough information to answer you. You should read the alimony provisions of your divorce decree to see when your alimony terminates. If it hasn't terminated, contact a family law attorney for help.
