Hello and thanks you for using Just Answer. If your husband have filed his tax return for 2008 he should file an amended tax return with Form 1040X (www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040x.pdf) to claim his son as a dependent. He should send a copy of the divorce papers that state he can claim his son as a dependent.
