If you have primary custody (sole), he should not be claiming the children at issue. If you would like me to intervene on your behalf, please call me at 262-789-2741 and we can schedule an appointment to meet.
Thank you, and I'm sorry for what you've been forced to endure.
File a motion for contempt if he doesn't have a court order allowing him to do so if you have primary placement. Ask the court to make him amend his tax returns or to pay you what your refund would have been if he hadn't improperly claimed her.

As far as obtaining additional tax benefits from your dependant daughter from the IRS, you would have to deal directly with the IRS. It could be a long process to claim your daughter once the father already claimed her. The court order does not necessarily order the IRS, however, the IRS will take that important issue into consideration. The issue of addressing the court would be a separate issue than the IRS. An attorney will be able to assist you. Dont listen to the advice of 'friends or a freind of a friend' whos brother works for the IRS.
Filing a motion for contempt is your best bet.
Our firm handles this type of law. Feel free to call to discuss further.
