Affidavit of Support / Child Support

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Per Pushbrk's suggestion, I am posting this question here in case there are others out there who need the same advice:

My question - on the I-864 Affidavit of Support, I had to list my income and the income of any other members of my household. I provided my income as stated on my tax returns and my pay stubs, however, I do not know how to show child support as another income.

The I-864 requires that if you use the income of another household member, that you show IRS tax info, and attach their tax transcripts, however, my daughter is 9 years-old, not required to file, and as far as reporting it as my own income, child support is not taxable and therefore not reported to the IRS (this was per the IRS when I called them).

So, my question is, how or can you use child support as income in regards to the I-864 - after all, it is another income supporting the household size - and if you can - how do you show it? I figured I would write a statement, advising NVC of the child support payments and attaching copies of the canceled checks and/or bank statements showing the deposits every month.
