NEED ADVICE..BM still won't let my DH claim 1of2 children on taxes when he has them 50% of time
I'm having a difficult time understanding why BM will still not allow DH to claim one of the children on taxes for 2013. She agreed last year that she would let him this year IF he paid all his child support for the year...which he did AND we have them 50% of the time, which has been the schedule for almost 2 years now. Legally, she is the domicary parent but the only extra expense she has is having them on her insurance. DH provides food, shelter, clothes, etc and they split all other costs (school fees, misc medical fees). This just infuriates me because financially, we are not secure and she most certainly is. It also makes me annoyed at my DH because he still hasn't filed a motion to adjust child support. The court order is still set up for him having visitation 2 days a week and some weekends. They are not aware that they live with us half of the time. Anyway, that's a whole other issue. Really, I'm wondering if anyone has experienced a similar situation with the tax refunds. When there are two children, why shouldn't he be allowed to claim one when everything is split 50/50.
Any advice would be helpful...thanks :)
