Does child support count towards your income for immigration sponsorship?

Asked 12 months ago - Chicago, IL

I'm trying to sponsor my husband for legal immigrant... I have 3 children that I claim for dependants at the end of the year and claim only 1 for paycheck purposes. We have been married for almost a year and have one child together. Am I able to claim child support as part of my income for the year?
