Child Support

Has anyone applied to have step kids included as dependents? What was the outcome?

You cannot have step children listed as dependants for child support. If you are their legal guardian by court order they are your dependants. But as step children where you have no legal rights to the child they will not be recognised as a dependant for cs. The children are only the dependants of their legal guardians. Hope that helps :)
