I have a question I am hoping someone can help me with.
I am wondering if there is anyway I can claim our daughter on my taxes this year?
2003 Court Order Mother awarded right even years, Father odd years.Order states- The provisions of this paragraph are conditioned upon the respective parties being otherwise eligible to claim the child according to IRS rules.
I signed a release for the tax year 2003 only.
2004 we went to court, I have sole custody and we set visitation(every other weekend and he gave most of that up)
I have her most the time, he is over $1,600.00 in child support arrears(would not hold steady job this year), he has never paid half of medical costs and owes 400.00(court ordered). I carry her on health insurance(he is also court ordered to,but does not) Is there any way I can claim her this year?
he laughs and said the credit he gets will get intercepted, so he is not really paying for her, while all year i had to struggle to pay preschool plus keep a roof over our heads. I have a 13 year steady job, but it is stillgets tight for us.
any information would be appriciated
