I'm am applying for a mtg but because of the ages of my children they will not consider my child support. I have a 21 yr old who is graduating college in 2 weeks and a 21 yr old who is a freshman in college. The underwriter said he can not take my child support because it needs to be at least 3 yrs out. I am pretty confident that I will be awarded alimony once child support stops. I was married for 20 yrs and didn't work outside the home for 17 yrs until my ex husband walked out. I feel like my only alternative right now is to ask for alimony in lieu of the child support so that the underwriter will use that income in addition to the income from my employment
