1. How long is a court order in effect?
2. Does a non-court appointed Legal Guardian's income factor into child support calculations?
3. As part of my final divorce decree, my ex-wife had custody and I had the exclusive right to claim the children for income tax purposes as long as I paid my child support obligations. Then my ex-wife's parents obtained custody of the children via an emergency situation. The custody or legal guardianship paperwork does not address who can claim the children on their taxes. Who has the right to claim them for tax purposes. I am current on child support obligations.
