When I got my divorce in Washington State we decided I would claim my daughter and my ex would claim my son on our tax returns. This is written like this in our divorce papers.
My boyfriend and I have been living together for several years now and I have become unemployed for awhile. I do not need to file a tax return since I had no income this last year at all. My boyfriend has been supporting me and my children except for the child support I receive. Can I let my boyfriend claim my daughter on his return since I am not filing this year? And do I have to get my ex's permission to let him do that even though it is written in our divorce papers that I claim my daughter and he claims my son? Isn't it my decision where that is used since we have it written that way on legal documents?
