Q: Per the parenting plan we alternate years. But my ex claimed my daughter on her taxes and I have no form 8332. Options?

My ex and I are supposed to alternate years claiming our daughter on taxes. This is the second time she has beaten me to filing and claimed her anyways. I understand the IRS won't make her fix her taxes without a signed form 8332. I don't have this. What are my options?
