My son was born out of wedlock and his father and I were never married. During the court hearing his father asked if he would be allowed to claim our son every other year on taxes. He does not see his child maybe twice a year. The magistrate wrote it into the paperwork and no one initialed where it was written that he be allowed to claim our son and we alternate every year. This was NOT TYPED INTO THE ORDER. It looks like a side note. Can I be held in contempt of court for not following this "Note" because I did claim my son two years in a row. Is this "side note" even valid?I did not sign an 8332 form or anything. I do not know if it was read into the record. As far as I know my son's father did his own taxes. Is this a matter I can fight in court if it comes down to him taking me for claiming my son? He does not provide 50% of my son's support. I provide housing, food, clothing and any "extras" he wants. The support also orders that I am responsible for 56% of medical support we he is only responsible for 44%.
