              They don't take any of your income if you are merely the new wife and not the mother to his kids. You are not responsible for his payment of child support. He is.

              Claiming 0 so you can receive one lump sum is pretty stupid, as, you are giving the government a free loan all year, and that's money that was rightfully earned by you, that could be in your pocket all year round.

              It's easy for people to forget that tax returns aren't some sort of jackpot won at the end of the year. It's money that has been taken out of your paycheck and used for purposes that we sometimes don't even know about. Claiming as high as allowed is the way to go, even if you end up owing at the end of the tax year. That money might as well be sitting in your bank account earning interest as the government's, who are using your tax money all year long.

              If you receive, say, $3,000 this year for tax return, think of what you could have done with that $3,000 this past year. As it is, the government doesn't actually return all of the money they took (borrowed) from you.

                Just thought I'd pass this along. If you are married and you file separately, you don't qualify for the child tax credit. You have to file a joint return. I found that out after I married my husband who has two children and owes support. It's one of the qualifications on the IRS web site. It's probably so people who owe child support can't receive the credit where it can't be touched. I sure wasn't happy as I have a boy from a previous relationship and one with my husband but they would have taken every penny anyway. I was irritated that I had to be penalized because he owed support, but that's just the way it is.

                  If you are married to someone that has their tax return taken each year for child support, and you file jointly, by federal law you can claim "injured spouse". What this does is it takes all of the refund for child support, but once you file the injured spouse claim, they send you a check for your portion of the refund that is due you. Say that your tax refund was $1000 and they took it all for child support. Your refund of that due to you was $750. They'd take the whole refund of $1000,you'd file for injured spouse,and they would send you a check for the $750 due to you. The child support would go back into arearages for the $750 but you would have what is rightfully yours.
                  I hope this helps. The IRS can give you more information on an injured spouse claim. Since tax time is coming up, I suggest this to anyone that is in this situation.

                    The greedy buggers? If you're not paying your child support, who's the greedy one? Your child deserves financial support from both parents to taxpayers don't get burden with financially support your kid.

                      Here's a thought... pay the child support you owe. Then this wont be a problem!

                        What a novel idea. Did you not read he has no job or means to even support himself?

                          I wonder if he doesn't pay because he can't or he doesn't pay because his ex won't let him see his kids? Happens all to often.

                            Well, if his ex is not "allowing" him to see his kids, he really should have exercised his rights and taken her to court on contempt charges for that.

                            Failing to pay child support on the basis that his ex his withholding his children is not a valid excuse. Child support and custody/visitation are two separate matters. He is financially and legally obligated to pay his child support regardless of that, and to take her to court if she's alienating his kids from him.

                              Yes but after you take the ex to court 15 times in three years for contempt and they still don't do anything to her for with holding visitation,you kind of give up the thought.
