Never hurts to ask I just wouldn't expect something.

All about the CO. It's not about what is fair...it's about what the contract says.
Quoting Leigh84:That's how we do it. DH's co says he claims the kids every year on his taxes. Back in March the kids started goin to BMs EOW and she asked if he would let her claim them on her taxes. He told her no b/c even tho she has them half the time he pays for all the kids bills, ins premiums, and extras. So he told her he was still going to claim the kids (per the co anyway) and she didn't say anything else about it. So yeah in your sitch I think it would be ok for your DH to ask to claim SS since she doesn't pay cs.
Quoting LyndaLoo78:Until there is a new CO modifying the current situation related to tax filing and claiming, you are legally obligated to abide by the current CO.

Quoting momager2two:I talked to turbo tax about this the other day. Legally there is a form, i cant remember what it is though, that both parties are required to sign in your situation. It states who is filing for the child as the irs does NOT default to co's anymore. Per the irs, if both parties file for the child the one with higher income will get the deduction.
I have asked turbo tax and the irs about it because my ex hasnt filed taxes in over 2 yrs. He has a hold on his taxes to go to me for back cs.
If you do ask her so modify it, make sure it is in writing and notorized. If possible, try and go through mediation to get that modified permanently to the order, provided bm agrees to it. I have told my ex in the past if he lets me claim her on his years i wil take what extra i get and tell the state to deduct it from his back support due.
