Child support affecting credit for mortgage loan?
Many years ago when my husband divorced his ex-wife, he was self-empoyed and missed several payments. Four years ago, he filed necessary documentation to have the arrears included with his monthly payments, increasing his payments monthly to include an additional $ 100. After four years, the Texas Attorney General’s office is showing it outstanding and consistently late. We are trying to purchase our first home but are having trouble getting the financing as his FICO score is reflecting this issue. What can we do to get around this issue and get approved? We have documentation that shows he is current on child support and current on the agreement to pay arrears.
