Not yet divorced ; I paid for more than half of my child daycare expenses in 2012 and my ex is in arrears on child support so after figuring out which was best for me i filed my taxes Head of Household and claimed both kids , yes without his knowledge ; There was and still is no legal document that addresses filing status or claiming either child . He's threatening to make me amend my return if i don't sign the marriage settlement agreement that he came up with . If he takes me to court will he have a strong case for the amendment ?Lived apart all of 2012, kids reside with me. He made 90K, I made 38K, it was in my better interest to file H of H because i qualified for EIC.
