Accept as evidence of alimony and spousal support:
Records from the agency through which the payments are made;
Official documents in the individual's possession (e.g., legal documents) that establish
the amount and frequency of the support;
Report of contact with the source of the payment that contains the amount and frequency
of the alimony or spousal support.
If none of the listed evidence is available, accept the individual's signed allegation
over a penalty clause. Document in REMARKS or on the EVID screen the reason for not
obtaining the evidence (e.g., the documentation does not exist, the court or agency
will not release the information, or the source refused to cooperate).
