More info needed, but in general, if you are current now, and have an agreement in place for the amounts in arrears, then possibly.. however if you have not made any payments then it's unlikely.. Lenders need to calculate your debt to income ratio (DTI).. Since child support is a debt, they need to qualify you as if you are making payments.. and for an approval, it's no different if you were in arrears on a car payment or credit card payment,, All unpaid debt is bad... unfortunately, without looking at your complete profile it's impossible to advise you, but in general, if you have a payment plan, and you have made 3 to 6 months "On time" payments, then it's possible you can get financing.. assuming you meet all other eligibility requirements.. The best advice I can give you is to contact a LOCAL mortgage broker and apply with them. Once they see your complete loan profile, they will be better equipped to advise you properly. Also, by applying with your LOCAL Broker, you have an advantage because he's familiar with local customs and works with many lenders with each one offering a different type of lending program. This is unlike the local bank which typically only has a few lending programs. The more lenders, the more lending options, and the more likely your scenario will be accepted.. Plus, the broker is experienced in seeking out the best loan terms for your particular scenario, and he has lower overhead which typically results in lower rates and fees than most of the larger lenders.. I'm a Broker here in Scottsdale AZ and I only lend in Arizona. If you or someone you know is looking for financing options, feel free to contact me or pass along my information. William J.
