Can child support affect immigration residency? 2 Answers as of June 10, 2013My husband has a child with his ex-girlfriend, never married to her and she was married to another guy while with him, and she is trying to put child support on him. Soon he will try to get his residency, will this affect him in anyway?

Not under the circumstances. This will depend on many things. If the ex gave birth to your child while she was married to another man, then by law that child is not your husband's. The child is the child of the ex-girlfriend's husband. Period. Unless there is a court order stating the contrary. Do not take this to the bank yet. Do consult with a family law attorney. This is an important matter that can answer the child support issue and your husband's residency question. Good luck!
