What can I do to stop my child's father from claiming him on taxes if he isn't going by the agreement we both have with each other??
Nothing should prohibit you from claiming the child on your taxes. Go ahead and do it.
This post is for information purposes only and does not constitute legal advice, nor does it establish an attorney-client relationship.
If your question really is about preventing what your child's father puts on his taxes, I very much doubt there is any way to do that, as a practical matter. If he wrongly claims the child as a dependent, it will be an issue he has to resolve with the tax authorities. However, you may be able to go to court seeking a modification of your child support or other order that addresses the right to claim the child as a dependent, and if you can convince the court he has violated that order in such a way that he should not have the right to claim the child as dependent and you should, then you can safely use that on your tax filing and rely on that court order if it becomes an issue with the tax authorities.
This is not legal advice, because I don't know enough about your situation to tailor my advice for your needs. My provision of an answer on Avvo to your question creates no attorney-client relationship.
