I was wanting to know if my husband ex can claim their daughter on her taxes and get the child earned income if she only get hers her every 1st, 3rd and 4th weekend and the summer. she doesn't support her at all=========== she doesn't support her at all ,THEN NO as she can not clam the child as her qualifying child;ALSO UNLESS she is a custodial parent of the child as her qualifying child, SHE CAN NOT CLAIM EITC(evn if she is her custodial parent she NEEDS to support the child for more than half of the year to claim EIC); The custodial parent of a child is the parent the child lives with for the majority of the year. The non-custodial parent may contribute to the cost of supporting the child, such as with child support, but the custodial parent has the legal right to claim the child as a dependent and to claim credit for which she qualifies, such as the earned income credit, the noncustodial parent may only claim the child in limited situations,i.e., child tax credit or and the additional child tax credit ONLY when she . provided more than half of the child’s
we have her from august first till a week after school gets out. the court order says they have joint custody and she can claim her on odd years but it never said anything about the earned income for her.=====>> So you need to know of she is the child’s custodial parent or as you said she did not support the child at all then she can not qualify for the credit.
she doesn't help pay for her school clothes or anything. she not with her mom for half of the year maybe 4 months at the most the whole year and im counting the weekends in that. please note they were never married.
=====> Unmarried parents face many of the same legal challenges as married parents when it comes to child custody issues. While child custody laws vary from state-to-state a major consideration will simply be whether you are the mother or the father of the child. As said she can not claim the child and EITC on her return.
