you can put whatever agreement you want for filing taxes in your divorce decree but its not ''legally binding'' unless the child resides w/the other parent atleast 50% of the time. you may allow the other parent to claim the children every other year (out of the kindness of your heart) but it is illegal & if either parent was audited by the irs they could be in trouble.

No, again, that is not true. You file a copy of the decree with your records. It does hold up for the IRS, that's why now when filing taxes there's another form, Form 8332 which they sign declaring they helped support the Child. There is absolutely nothing illegal about it. Residency is not the end all for the IRS.



There are different rules for Divorce Decrees instated before 2009 though.

It states right in the divorce papers that any child care is to be split in half on top of child support. I re read the documents.
