(1) It is lawful for a sahib-e-nisab (one who possesses wealth equal to prescribed limit) to do so (paying zakah in instalment each month) there is no harm.
(2) If that divorced woman is entitled to receive zakah, you can give your zakah to her.
(3) It is also right to pay the zakah to a divorced woman’s daughter.
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
