    Lawyers agree

    Answered . A lawyer who handles social security benefits can help you and probably recommend a CPA or Tax Attorney who can answer your questions. This is not an easy question to answer on a public forum. Look on AVVO.com or call your County Bar Association's Lawyer Referral and Information Service. You may also be able to get advice from legal aid or other legal clinics in your area.

    Good luck.

    Answered . You need to consult with a divorce attorney as to any errors in the judgment entered in the divorce case. If you have joint physical custody, there should be an award of alternating dependency on tax returns.
