Here's my question. My daughters father called me today to get her social security# to add her to his insurance like he is court ordered to do. Like an idiot, I gave it to him, and then verified later on in the day that there is no insurance and he filed his taxes and claimed her. He has never had custody. My daughter is 15 and HAS NEVER LIVED WITH HIM a day in her life, only with me. I DID NOT SIGN any IRS form stating he has permission to. We were NEVER MARRIED, thus no divorce decree. And the every other year filing was never established in courts, I have always claimed her and HOH and the EIC. However, as of March 08' he was $6,000 in arrearage and I had an atty obtain that for me thru some estate money my daughters father was getting. I got it. In Dec 08, I rec'd another $2,000 from again, estate money that was being paid to my daughters father from HIS fathers death(10% of his portion). I also rec'd approx $35 a week on and off for regular child support. I realize I did recieve a lot last year. However, I went a long time with NOTHING and it is only because of the death of my daughters grandfather that this arrearage was satisfied. BECAUSE I did receive these monies, I am guessing my daughters father guessed he could just claim her. Which he did today. I have no idea how since he has none of the above??????????????? (Divorce decree, IRS form signed by me, court order)If he supposedly "cannot" claim her, then how did he do it today!!!!!!!! Sorry had to give you background info for you to understand????? Can he do this? What will the IRS do to my tax return??? Can I still claim her??? I am so confused! Please help!Thank you!!
