Child support payments should be a tax deduction if my ex doesnt have a job and she lives off my $$


I gross $4000.00, I pay $1800 a month on childsupport/ alimony, I have no tax credits so I have to pay $6000 to $10,000 every year back to the IRS. I make monthly payments of $500 to them. I have to eat all month, gas, rent, etc. Why cant I use my childsupport payments as a tax deduction? My ex doesnt even have to report it as income. Why???
