ok, so i got some state asisstance when my ex husband wasn't paying me my child support and they have been taking a portion of my cs to pay the state back. last yr my husband claimed both the boys and i never got any money for them and neither did he and i never saw that the state got any either. he said that they didn't let him claim the boys which i thought odd. he never found out why. anyway what my question is is that he wants to claim them both again, i'm concerned that if he claims them that his housing credit he will be getting will go to the state instead of me...is this the case or will it come to me first?
i have been told many yrs now that i'm suppose to get paid first then the state. this has not been true. has anyone been through this? will the state keep his tax return or give it to me?
also should i let him claim them or me, i can only get the child tax credit for one of them now?
