Q: child support
A child resides with the custodial parent for 16 years but then at 16 the child was asked to move out and move in with the noncustodial parent but neither party goes thru the courts to have support changed or modified. Both parties agreed to allow the noncustodial parent to use the child support card for the two years while the child lived there and went to public school. When the child turned 18, he left home less then a month and is no longer residing with either parent. They parties were given paperwork at the courthouse to have child emancipated In the mean time the custodial parent still wants to claim the child on taxes even though the child did not live with her for the past two years. Taxes offices said that neither party can claim for child tax credit. The noncustodial parent claimed child as a dependent due to him living in our home for all of two years. Custodial parent says she can claim him because she paid auto insurance, cell phone and health insurance.
