here in CA they can only be claimed by the person they live over 50% of the time with.

I'm pretty sure this is the case everywhere.

He can only claim them if you give him permission or there is a court order that you get to claim them one year and he gets the next.

Yea, I think that is a federal thing, not a state by state thing.  He can go right ahead and claim them, but you claim them too, and when the IRS comes and does an investigation, they will find that the children live with you and he only has visitation.  He will get in trouble and fined and you will get the extra tax money.

Yeah everyone has already said it. You get to claim them because you are the one who technically supports them and puts a roof over their heads. It is a federal thing and since they are with you over 50% of the time he has no right to claim them and if he does will get in trouble in the long run. . Unless you were to give him permission to claim them.
