My partner's ex wife just informed him that she is claiming both of their children on her taxes. In the divorce decree it states that she can claim their daughter and he claims their son. She has not filed anything with the court requesting a modification to the decree, but she is saying he is $300 behind in his child support. CS is garnished automatically from his paycheck to avoid these situations, but we think there might have been a couple weeks he missed last summer when he changed jobs.
We're more than happy to pay her any arrears, but she said she's claiming their son anyway. I wish she had just told us he was behind. We both think child support is very important, and we don't want to short her on it.
Can she do this? I don't think she can legally, but I am wondering if any of you have had to deal with this from an ex-wife and how you handled it. Thanks in advance for any advice!
