No, I don't believe so, since it is non-taxable income.

No, you don't have to report child support as income for it.

If you receive it you do need to report it because it is income to the family.  At this point you are not receiving it so there is nothing to report.  I agree that it should not affect what you get but I do believe they ask for the information.

I have to report it every year on my FAFSA but its not counted in my income. Only income on tax returns are counted.
