Child Custody and Taxes
One of the most difficult areas when it comes to divorce proceedings is child custody. Child custody is already a very sensitive issue for most divorcing parents; unfortunately, there are many factors that may complicate the issue. When parents share custody, for example, the issue of child tax exemptions can become a topic of debate.
It is common for both parents who are going through a divorce to feel that they are entitled to these tax breaks.

Dealing with the Issues of Child Tax Exemptions
Typically tax exemptions for children are given straight to the primary caregiver. However, among divorcing parents, there is sometimes disagreement about who should be the primary caregiver. In addition, in situations where custody is shared, questions about tax exemptions and other legal matters can become complex. Methods for finding answers to these questions include:
- Agreeing to split tax exemptions – this can be in the form a formal agreement written out by a divorce lawyer
- Consulting an expert on tax in divorce
- Considering who could make better use of the tax exemptions
While it may be a difficult process, issues concerning tax exemptions and child custody can be resolved, particularly if both parties are willing to negotiate.
