Child support is not taxable, so it doesn't have to be included on your Form 1040.    

Unemployment compensation does go on your Form 1040, along with any taxes you may have had withheld. 

To enter unemployment in Turbo Tax, go to Income>Unemployment>Unemployment and Paid Family Leave. 

You could use Turbo Tax Free Edition.  Here's a link to check it out.
