My name isDawn
I am divorced w/ 6 kids. I have residency w/ joint custody.
I am a stay at home mom. I do not work.
In my divorce papers it states my kids dad gets to claim all 6 kids unless I myself make more than 25,000 dollars. We both signed that agreement .
I am now married. My new husband and I file joint return. We made over the 25,000 dollars per my divorce. I am still a stay at home mom.
My new husbands income is not considered in to the amount of child support the kids dad has to pay.
I would like to claim atleast 3 of the kids.
All of the kids live with my new husband and myself all the time w/ only one visiting about two-three over nights a week. The other 5 dont see him at all due to issues my x has created.
I would like to know if I can claim the kids even though I personaly did not make the 25,000. Again I filed joint return w/ my new husband.
My x has already filed and claimed all 6 kids as our papers got kicked back to us. The difference was 8,000 dollars. I spoke to an attorney not familar w/ tax law
and they said
the judge would get to decide . Is this the case or is there a IRS law regarding this matter ?
