I received abt $18,000 from child support for 3 children from ex-husband but do not work outside the home so did not receive any w-2’s or I-9’s. what form would I file?

I would like to take advantage of child tax credit.

Sorry but you are out of luck ... the child support is not taxable income so you get no credits.  In fact you have no reason to file a return at all.
