Using child support as part of income to qualify for a mortgage?My income is pretty small, and I would like to use my child support to qualify for a mortgage. I have the amount of child support agreed to in my divorce settlement, and he pay every month on time. However, we do this unconventionally. He owns the house that I live in, and so he takes the amount of the "rent" out and sends the balance in a check, so there isn't much of a paper trail except for that small amount. I'm really hoping I can somehow still count the child support as part of my income. Is there still a way to do this?January 29 2013 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
