Child support payments do not have any thing to do with being able to qualify to claim any child as a qualifying dependent during the tax year. Majority of nights during the tax year for this purpose in the home with that parent 183 or MORE nights during the tax year is the CUSTODIAL parent and that is the taxpayer that can qualify to claim the child as a QC dependent during the 2014 tax filing season for the 2013 tax year 1040 FIT return. You really do need to contact the local state agency that takes care of the child support payments and get them involved with you about trying to get some of the child support amounts paid into the system at this time in your life for this purpose during this tax year. Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 12/31/2013

If the daughter lives with you then you can claim her every year according to IRS. Alternating is an agreement between you and your ex.

Child support is irrelevant when it comes to claiming kids. You must give him a form 8332 (unless he has one already) to allow him to take the exemption and child tax credit. You retain head of household and eic if you qualify. If you do not he can take you to court for contempt.

If he didn't work, then there would be no benefit to him claiming anyone. Child support is irrelevant. If the divorce decree says he can claim the child, and you do, he can take you back to court for contempt, even if claiming the child does him no good.
