No but the ex-wife might find herself in a bit of a financial pickle if the ex-husband goes to court and is successful in getting an Order specifying money paid retroactive to date of separation is indeed SS.

CRA doesn't care. They go by court Orders. CRA isn't going to play judge when money paid to ex-wife may not be deemed by the court to be SS at all.

Ex-husband might have counted his 'chicken before the egg' so-to-speak by ASSUMING ex would sign agreement so he could claim everything paid on HIS income tax.
