Can a creditor ask me about the alimony, child support, or separate maintenance payments that I or my co-signer receive?

A creditor may ask whether income stated in your application comes from alimony, child support, or separate maintenance payments. 

However, the creditor must tell you that you do not have to reveal such income if you do not want it considered.
