Income tax question.One parent had custodial custody of child for six months and the other had temporary custodial custody for six months....can both claim dependent on income tax? We heard of the tie breaker law that parent with the highest income gets to claim the dependent.

I am the father of a 16 year old son that has been in his

I am the father of a 16 year old son that has been in his mother's custody since birth. He recently contacted me informing me of abuse in the home and asked if he could move in with me when he turned 17 in 7 months. The abuse he is receiving comes from both his mother and his step father. He also informed me that the abuse has gotten worse in the past couple of months. My question is can I legally take him into my home right now and get him away from that situation with his mother and step father? No prior custody battle has ever happened. All we have had done is a DNA test when he was a baby and she declined to receive child support from me after the results came back 99.99999%. She has kept us apart for 13 years and has a controlling grip and won't allow him to go out unless she is with him.

Currently my mother and I are caring for my niece. My mother

Currently my mother and I are caring for my niece. My mother actually has temporary custody. We actually filed suit to get custody of child due to mothers drug abuse and she agreed to terms just before trial. She has not met the conditions of the agreement but continues to say she is going to get the judge to get her back. She agreed to at least 30 days inpatient rehab and attended 1 week with the rest supposedly outpatient support. She does not even attend all supervised visits set by court and has shown up on many occasions under the influence of something. My question is does she specifically have to meet all requirement or will the court give her leeway with terms of treatment program. Also does she have to have mother served and notified if she tries to get her back.
