    Apparently under terms of the divorce, the father was to be consulted about decisions affecting Adam, but mom had the final say so.

      been released to the public? That would seem unusual.

        In 2010, Nancy Lanza was to receive $240,000 for the year. In 2011, alimony increased to $265,000, followed by $289,800 in 2012. By 2015, the amount was to be $298,800. From 2016 to 2023, it was to be adjusted annually for cost of living, then it was to be modified after Peter Lanza retired.

        Alimony would terminate in the case of the death of either party, court documents show.

        Any decisions about Adam's health, education and religious upbringing would be made by his mother, after consulting with his father. In the case of any disagreement, Nancy would make the final decision.
