I have one daughter and her father has not been around for years. He pays child support but for the last 4 years it has been off and on. We have no custody agreement but I am the primary caregiver. He does not bother with her and has not seen her in a long time. For the last two years, 2005-2006, I was in college and not working. He would show up, big surprise, around tax time and would want to claim my daughter. Since I was not working at the time I would let him. He would give me half of the money but always thought he didn't deserve anything, he does not take care of her and put in all the time it takes to raise a child, it is all me. I am now working and able to claim her myself. He still thinks that he sould receive some of the money. I would like to know the if he has a legal right to go behind my back and claim our daughter. Also, if he is entitled to any of the money. He is using it for his other children and I would use it to take care of my daughter.
