4 or 5 years ago.....you should be good to go.

the alimony deduction is eliminated for any divorce or separation instrument entered into after December 31, 2018, and the ex-spouse receiving the support payments is no longer be required to include the support payments in income.

Schedule 1 in all of America on line 2a is alimony received for 2020.

You must not be looking at schedule one

Divorces are always so fun for tax preparers, are they not? Sometimes it can give a bottle of Tylenol a headache... Just my opinion
