Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney. I’ll be happy to help you in any way I can. This site is for educational purposes only. Sometimes - although certainly not always - experts have to give you what you deem “bad news” but that should not be a reflection of how satisfied you are with the assistance your expert provided. Experts on this site receive credit for assisting you when you click the rating (the stars) so please submit a rating prior to logging off. You aren't charged anything extra by submitting a rating.The way it typically works is that the parent with whom the child spent the most number of nights during the year) (the parent with primary custody, typically) is considered the parent with the right to claim the child. I know it seems like it would be correct for the parent who provides most of the support to be the one to claim the child on their taxes. The way to change this would be for your ex to agree to a chance in, say, alternate years (though I understand that isn't likely). I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or you need me to clarify anything. Please also submit a rating if you're satisfied with your assistance; this will not cost you anything extra but it's the only way we get credit for assisting you. And please don't feel like we have to stop talking after you submit a rating. I'd be more than happy to continue working with you after that as well.
