Signing Bonus and Child Support

I’m a professional athlete. Earlier this year, I signed on with a new team and received a signing bonus. My ex-girlfriend just had a kid that I think is mine, and she is going after child support. Will the signing bonus be considered part of my income?

Unfortunately, yes. It will be considered income in the year that it is received.
