I claim three dependants on my taxes since their father claims one. If I have 4 children and I'm claiming three does that make the yearly amount I need for sponsorship drop?
There are more considerations than just being claimed as dependents. Which household do they live in, are you responsible for any support for the 4th child? You should also be able to count child support as income to meet your obligation under the Poverty Guidelines.
