Can I qualify for a car loan if I list child support as my only source of income?
I'm receiving child support from my ex-husband. I'm also looking for a job, but for now the child support is the only income I've got. Is this enough to get a car loan?
Unearned income, such as child support, can qualify you for a car loan, yet it’s completely dependent on the amount of child support income and how long you’ll be receiving it. If this is your only income, you’ll also have to have good or excellent credit to become a strong candidate for an auto loan.

"My house's foundation is damaged from the shifting and settling of the soil around it. Will my home insurance cover this damage? "
Having to pay for the damage myself will wipe out my emergency savings. Any assistance from my insurance company would really help me out.
